Abstract : A description is given of the experiment and the temperature and pressure time-series. Three separate temperature phases are identified--each lasting about 11 days. The last phase is believed to be a lens of warm water intruding from the north, originating, perhaps, in Possession Sound. An attempt is made to estimate the contribution of mooring motion to the temperature signal. The first temperature phase is investigated for the possible presence of internal waves. (Author)
