Oceanographic data obtained from CTD and current meters as part of the Dynamics of the Loop Current in U.S. Waters project in the Gulf of Mexico from 2009-04-19 to 2011-11-14 (NCEI Accession 0126392)

The study design for the in-situ measurements consisted of an array of nine full-depth (or tall) moorings, six near-bottom moorings, and 25 Pressure Inverted Echo Sounders (PIES) deployed in U.S. waters. The overarching goal of this study is to increase knowledge of the dynamics of the Loop Current in the eastern Gulf of Mexico through a combined analysis of observations and numerical modeling output.
