Observed Circulation in Upper West Passage of Narragansett Bay, Sept 2013
[ Survey location and context for following figures described in Deployments. ]
1. Water velocity profile measurements by ADCP on SCOAP
during ~35 minute late flood period,
when transiting 4km east-west transect (shown in Deployments) eastward at ~4-5 knots.
Transects such as the two shown here (Figs 1 & 2) were
collected each half hour for a period of about 10 hours. Upper
frame: Eastward velocity. Lower frame: Northward velocity.
Scale: red positive 25 cm/s, violet negative 25 cm/s.
