Abstract
Isobaric RAFOS floats have been used to track the California Undercurrent and to investigate its continuity since 1992. The data include 61 quasi-Lagrangian subsurface trajectories sampled for the most part between 150 and 600 m. The data set allow estimates of Eulerian and Lagrangian statistics for the region, studies of mesoscale eddy activity, and analysis of seasonal variability of circulation patterns off Central California. A browsable web-based inventory and a Graphical User Interface have been developed to provide access to this data set including interactive manipulation of the data.
