Equipment Used
To measure the internal wave field on the upper continental slope over
long time duration (> 1 year), and to estimate the effects of internal waves on
the transport of sediment over the slope.
Information to be Derived
Seasonal changes in the internal temperature field over the slope, with analysis 
of the internal waves in this region.
Time-series measurements (hourly) of temperature at 12 depths, currents and 
light transmission at three depths for over one year.

This mooring was in 461m water depth; USGS had 9 temperature sensors at 100m,
175m, 200m, 225m, 275m, 300m, 325m, 350m, and 375m; University of Washington had
current meters, conductivity gauges, temperature sensors, and light transmission
meters on the mooring at 60m, 180m, and 435m; and SUNY had sediment traps on the
Got Help? For P-1-95-NC, we would appreciate any information on -- analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, funding, kms of navigation, NGDC Info, notes, organization, owner, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
