DESCRIPTION OF SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM: Current-meter moorings were deployed by the University of Maine and U.S. Geological Survey at six sites in the Gulf of Maine as part of the Ecology of Harmful Algal Blooms (ECOHAB) project in the Gulf of Maine. CTD data and water samples were collected at the mooring sites and at several other location along the cruise track. A small hydrographic (CTD) survey of the Kennebec-Androscoggin River plume was also performed in eastern Casco Bay.
A single mooring, "G" was deployed in Canadian waters. Due to a Canadian State Department error, this mooring was removed by the Canadian Coast Guard approximatly 22 hours after it was deployed. The current-meter data collocted at this site is shown in the two figures. The upper water column velocity and lower water column velocity are presented.
