dc.description.abstractCharacteristic features of the velocity and temperature fields in the Florida Current are isolated and discussed on the basis of time-averaged free instrument data obtained during approximately 40 transacts across the current at four separate sections during 1965-1966. The sections, from Marathon - Cay Sal Bank t0o Ft. Pierce - Matanilla Shoal, encompass a 225 km downstream distance within the Florida Straits. The dominant feature is a downstream acceleration of the subsurface current, associated with the convergent downstream cross-sectional area of the Straits. A uniaxial surface current and the cross-stream component of the subsurface current are also intimately linked with the convergence and divergence of the cross-channel width. The mass field adjusts to changes in current velocity as would be anticipated from Bernoulli's Equation. Comparison of the results of the free instrument technique with previous time-averaged data taken in this area shows close agreement.en_US
