Currents, attenuation, temperature, and conductivity from moorings at the deep-sea municipal sewage disposal site in the North Atlantic Ocean continental rise off New York and New Jersey deployed from the OCEANUS and ATLANTIS between September 20th, 1989 and August 3rd, 1990 (NCEI Accession 0066008)

Near-bottom current measurements to understand the fate and transport of sludge discharged at the sea surface. Sludge from the New York/New Jersey metropolitan region was discharged at DWDS106 from 1986-1992 and represents the largest dump of sludge to the deep ocean in the world and an opportunity to observe the long-term effects of ocean disposal on the deep ocean.
