The Howe Sound current metering program volumes I, II, and III data reports from A. P. KNIGHT in the Coastal Waters of British Columbia from 1971-11-01 to 1974-02-01 (NCEI Accession 7700091)

Current meter data and some temperature and salinity data were collected as part of the Howe Sound Current Metering Program Data during November 16, 1971 - February 1, 1974 by the Department of the Environment, Marine Science Branch, Victoria, B.C. Data reports provide histograms summarizing current speed and direction, temperature ranges and salinity ranges but do not include observed data values.

Reports are in analog format only as Volumes I, II and III (Part 1 and Part 2). Reports are housed in the NOAA Central Library stacks with call number GC 1 .C4 no. 75-7 v.1, GC 1 .C4 no. 75-7 v.2, GC 1 .C4 no. 75-7 v.3, GC 1 .C4 no. 75-7 v.4.
