Abstract : Measurements of oceanic velocity and vorticity were made during an experiment conducted in July 1987. The goals of this work were to test the newly developed vorticity meter, to investigate the benthic boundary layer by obtaining profiles of velocity with XCPs, and to determine flow characteristics near a topographic feature. The experimental design and instrument performance are discussed, and preliminary results are presented.
