Abstract : Summaries of long-term current, temperature and pressure measurements from moored instruments in the western Pacific Ocean (ranging from 152 W to 165 E longitude and 31 N to 41 N latitude) are presented. There were two consecutive settings of instruments, referred to as Zonal I and Zonal II, each spanning a one-year interval. There were, for the first time, 2 two-year mooring deployment, which were successful. Tables, plots and statistics include filtered and unfiltered data, as well as merged and single setting data. The objective of the experiment was to define the basic properties of the low frequency variability in the mid-latitude North Pacific.
