Temperature and Salinity U.S. GLOBEC Long-Term Observation Program (LTOP) NH10 Mooring Data

A long-term mooring site on the Oregon shelf (44.6467N -124.3067E) was established in August 1997 and maintained with few gaps through December 2004 with U.S. GLOBEC funding. The mooring is at 81 m water depth, near the historical Newport Hydrographi Line. The nearest standard NH line station is NH10 (10 nautical miles off shore), so this mooring is referred to as Mooring NH10.

Upward looking acoustic Doppler current profilers have been used to measure vertical profiles of water velocity (insert actual sample interval here) at 2 or 4 m vertical intervals depending on instrument (data elsewhere on U.S. GLOBEC data server). The mooring is serviced in spring and fall. Temperature records are available for 11 depths; salinities for 4 depths. There are a few data gaps.

Temperature and salinity are processed using a cosine-Lanczos filter with a 40-hr half-power point. Six-hourly data included here are temperature (deg C) and salinity (PSS: unitless).

The data were collected by Mike Kosro, 104 COAS Admin Bldg, COAS, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331-5503 (; Phone: 541-737-3079).
