Abstract : A summary of moored instruments over the continental shelf of Peru is presented. Measurements of variables were made in an upwelling zone between Pisco and San Juan, from 28 March to 9 April, 1969. Time series of temperature and horizontal current and wind velocities were obtained at several depths and locations by an array of moored, recording instruments. Supplementary hydrographic and drogue measurements were also made. (Author)
