Currents, backscatter, attenuation, conductivity, temperature, sigma theta, and pressure data collected in the Hudson Shelf Valley, North Atlantic Ocean from instruments deployed from the RV OCEANUS and RV CONNECTICUT on MOORINGS from December 4, 1999 to May 14, 2000 (NODC Accession 0066009)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Field experiments have been carried out to understand the transport of sediments and associated contaminants in the Hudson Shelf Valley, offshore of New York. The valley is a sink and potential conduit for the movement of sediments and associated contaminants across the shelf. A winter experiment (2000-2001) investigated the role of winter storms in transporting sediments in the valley.
