Abstract : This is a final report on the principal activities in Ocean Storms and Gulf of Cadiz observations as funded under ONR Grant 'Oceanic Variability and Dynamics.' Publications have appeared and are summarized in Table 1. Other projects were completed on the data sets from the Ocean Storms Experiment. The principal results of the Ocean Storms research are the development of the new profiler, the observation of spatially variable inertial motions and the determination of mean vertical shear. The three elements of the Gulf of Cadiz Expedition--Ampere Seamount Studies, Meddy Studies and Med Outflow Studies--have been successful, and are described in the publications referenced in Table 1.
