MetadataShow full item record
Mean currents and density were measured off Point Sur, California in March 1989 using Pegasus and CTD instruments. Velocity, temperature, salinity, and density fields are examined to discern the structure of the California and Davidson currents. Velocities measured by Pegasus are compared to flow fields derived from geostrophy. The Davidson Current flows poleward at the surface in its winter configuration despite northerly winds and coastal upwelling which normally drive the flow subsurface in the summer months.
