Abstract : The stated objectives of this program are: (1) To attempt to determine what fraction of the temporal variations of temperature and salinity is due to advection and what fraction is due to internal wave action for the region concerned; (b) To obtain at least a sample description of the tidal and non-tidal flow along the edge of the continental shelf, in order to provide boundary input information for the near shore circulation studies in that area.
