Abstract : Operations activities of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Buoy Group for an exploratory array of deep-ocean moorings in the western North Pacific ocean are described along with specific engineering notes associated with high-current deep moorings. The array, along 152 deg E. from 28 deg N. to 41 deg N., was in place for about two years. After one year the array was successfully recovered and redeployed. Brief summaries of each of three research cruises are provided. An Appendix lists details of the twenty moorings including positions, dates deployed and recovered, instrument types and depths and moored station numbers which are required for specific data retrieval by investigators.
