Abstract : As part of the ONR ARI on Eastern Boundary Currents we: (1) Built, deployed and recovered a meteorological buoy, with downward-looking ADCP current meter and a thermistor string during the 1-year field season, then QC'ed the data and made it available; (2) collected satellite surface temperature data, along with satellite altimeter data, and made the data available to those in the project; (3) used the ADCP current data to evaluate the quality of the altimeter data; (4) used the altimeter data to characterize the seasonal evolution of the mesoscale circulation field.
