Southern California Bight Current Meters

Flux Deployment

 

Each of the links below are for a specific current meter deployment. The data is available as text files for transfer to users. For each deployment, you may download specific meters. Data include speed, direction, u component of velocity, v component of velocity, and temperature. Some instruments also include conductivity. This was converted to salinity indicated by S in the variable (Variable) column. Spd indicates speed, rather than the usual u and v; this results from bad compass data.

Units used are:

speed, u component, v component: cm sec-1
direction: degrees true north
temperature: ° C
salinity: psu
