Oceanography of the Grand Banks region of Newfoundland, March 1974-October 1974 by Charles R Weir( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two cruises were conducted to the Grand Banks of Newfoundland during the 1974 International Ice Patrol season. The main purpose of these cruises was to assist Commander, International Ice Patrol in the prediction of iceberg drift. Direct current measurements were made in the Ice Patrol area with both subsurface current meter arrays and shipboard current meter stations. A flow onto the Grand Banks was observed in addition to the southerly flowing Labrador Current. An additional research was completed involving the tagging of icebergs and the observation of their drift. (Author)

Tidal current atlas for Long Island Sound and San Francisco Bay by J. A Fornshell( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A computerized Tidal Current Model for Long Island Sound and San Francisco Bay has been developed by the Coast Guard Oceanographic Unit. The model is a digitized version of the National Ocean Survey's Tidal Current Tables and the Tidal Current Charts for Long Island Sound and Block Island Sound and San Francisco Bay. Tests were conducted to verify the accuracy of these sources of tidal current information using a drift pole survey of surface currents for Long Island Sound published by the Coast and Geodetic Survey and the Army Corps of Engineers Hydraulic Model Bay and Delta Model for San Francisco. The Long Island Sound test showed complete agreement between the model and observations 83.2% of the time, and 100% agreement at 40% of the positions tested. The San Grancisco Bay test showed under prediction of speeds by 0.5 to 1.0 knots in 3 of 4 regions and over prediction by 0.6 knots in the 4th region. The predicted directions were deflected to the right of the observed directions 75% of the time by 49.15 to 66.11 degrees. These comparisons indicate that the data for Long Island Sound is reliable and that for San Francisco Bay should be used with caution. (Author)

Seven man life raft leeway study by C. W Morgan( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leeway angle is the angle between the direction toward which the wind is blowing and the relative drift, due to the wind, of a drift object embedded in the water surface. Leeway factors is the ratio between the drift object's speed relative to the water and the wind speed. An analysis was made of several hundred observations of leeway angle, leeway factor, and wind speed for a seven man life raft attached to a sea anchor. (Author)

Oceanographic observations in Kane Basin, September 1968 and July, September 1969 by Martin J Moynihan( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oceanographic observations were made on three cruises to Kane Basin in 1968 and 1969. Temperature, salinity, and oxygen characteristics are described. No water with the characteristics of Baffin Bay Deep Water was found south of the 250 meter sill in Kane Basin, indirectly confirming the possibility of a pulsing of cold dense water over the sill into Baffin Bay. Volume transports through the southern entrance to Kane Basin were calculated and compared with tide and wind conditions without finding any direct correlation. (Author)

Oceanographic observations : Kennedy Channel, Kane Basin, Smith Sound and Baffin Bay, summer 1963 by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a presentation of the oceanographic data collected from 28 July to 4 August 1963 during the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Evergreen's special survey performed at the conclusion of the regular work that is done for the International Ice Patrol off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and in the Labrador Sea every year. The areas surveyed consisted of Kennedy Channel, Kane Basin, Smith Sound, and upper Baffin Bay and the data covered in this report includes physical, chemical, geological oceanography, and bathymetry.
