NODC Standard Product: Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study: Hydrographic, Drifters, ADCP, and miscellaneous sensors (NODC Accession 9800141)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The Louisiana-Texas Shelf Physical Oceanography Program (LATEX) was sponsored by the Minerals Management Service (MMS) of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Of its three study units, the Texas-Louisiana Shelf Circulation and Transport Processes Study (LATEX A or LATEX Shelf) was conducted by the Texas A&M University System. The LATEX A field program ran from April 1992 to December 1994. The study area encompassed the Texas-Louisiana continental shelf offshore of approximately the 10-m isobath, from the Mississippi River to the Rio Grande. The five major field components were: moored current meter measurements, drifting buoys, hydrography, acoustic Doppler current profiling (ADCP), and meteorological buoys.

This is the fifth and final CD-ROM from the LATEX A program. It contains hydrographic, ADCP, drifting buoy, and expendable probe data collected during the LATEX A field program. The final data reports for these data sets are also included on this CD-ROM in PDF format.
