Equipment Used
instrumentmooring
temperature
currentmeter
tempsalinometer
transmissometer
sedimenttrap
Purpose
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.
Summary
Time-series measurements (hourly) of temperature at 12 depths, currents
and light transmission at three depths for over one year.

This mooring was in 450m water depth;
USGS had 11 temperature sensors at 150m, 200m, 250m, 300m, 320m, 340m, 360m,
380m, 400m, 420m, and 437m; 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 mooring.
Notes
Mooring recovery from P796NC (which was deployed on 7/22/96), instrumen
t servicing/replacement, and mooring redeployment
