Current meter data obtained from a mooring off Point Perpendicular, Jervis Bay: 05/04/89 - 28/03/90

A current meter mooring was installed at the entrance of Jervis Bay, off Point Perpendicular. This mooring housed 2 current meters, at 12m and 34m. Over a period of approx. 1yr the mooring was deployed 5 times in nominally the same location (as illustrated). Deployment 1,3, 4 & 5 - 35.1 S, 150.797 E. Deployment 2 - 35.0983 S, 150.793 E. Datasets presented here correspond to data retrieved from the two current meters over the year.

The hourly datasets provide data accumulated from all 5 deployments, and provide details of the eastern & northern tidal components, cross & long-shore velocity components, temperature, salinity and sigma-T.

The subsets to these larger datasets, present individual data points collected at sample intervals of 10 mins (deployment 1) or 15 mins (deployments 2, 3, 4, 5). Compared to the hourly averaged datasets, these allow water movements to be studied over a shorter time scale. The parameters measured include the eastern and northern tidal components, water speed and direction, temperature, salinity and sigma-T.

Approx deployment dates - see individual records for exact date and time of collection: 1) 5/4/89 - 4/6/89... 2) 23/6/89 - 28/8/89... 3) 30/8/89 - 13/11/89... 4) 14/11/89 - 29/1/90... 5) 31/1/90 - 28/3/90
