dc.description.abstractThe purpose of the San Clemente Basin Experiment (SCBE) was to survey the upper ocean currents and temperature in a region southwest of San Clemente Island (SCI). To accomplish this, two cruises were made in this area during which currents were measured by using a shipboard mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profile (ADCP), and temperature was measured during the second cruise by deploying Expendable Bathythermographs (XBT). The first cruise took place during 17-21th July 1989 and the second one during 2nd - 6th September 1989. Data indicate and variety of features. Two different flow patterns were observed: Strong poleward alongshore flow (about 40 cm/s) occured 40-60 km west of SCI and small scale eddied were seen further offshore...en_US
