JONSDAP 76 was an international undertaking in the North Sea during 1976. It consisted of two parts: FLEX; the Fladen Ground Experiment and the INOUT; the inflows of water of the whole North Sea as well as the internal movements. During the INOUT period of JONSDAP 76 some 200 current meters were recording, mostly in the North Sea but also at the Goteborg - Fredrikshavn (GF) section, here as part of the 5 year project 'The Baltic Entrance Project: the GF Section'. A compilation of the results of the measurements in the NE North Sea Proper as well as at the GF section is presented. Also some relevant data from 1967 is included. As a result the material can be divided in two classes with mainly E-wind or W-wind situations.The data are quality inspected. Checks were made by manual control.
