Summary

Current meters were moored to the west of the Wyville-Thomson Ridge during September 1987 to June 1988, providing a nine month record at 3 depths at one site and a four month record at a second site. Extensive CTD surveys of the area were made in September 1987 and June 1988 and limited data were collected in the vicinity of the current meters in February and November 1988.
