Abstract : As a continuation of the study of the circulation pattern over Plantagenet Bank, bi-level (15 and 105 ft) current measurements were taken at ARGUS ISLAND during the latter part of February 1962. Analysis of the data shows that neither winds nor tidal influence were primary factors in determining direction of current flow during the observational period. However, tidal influence on current speed is apparent. Current direction at both levels was fairly constant. Direction at the lower level was about 40 degrees to the right of direction at the upper level. (Author)
