During the week of 17 to 24 of January, 1990, the R/V Pt. Sur conducted a hydrographic and current survey in the vicinity of Pt. Sur, CA. The ship collected data along a transection across the continental margin which began 2.5 km offshore and extended along parallel 360 20' N. At 1230 W, the transection turned towards the southwest and extended out to a point some 220 km offshore. Data were collected using CTD, PEGASUS (acoustic dropsonde), and ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) instruments.
