Currents, temperature, and pressure data from moorings deployed during the WHITEFOOT cruise on Georges Bank, Massachusetts, from December 28, 1976 to March 5, 1977 (NODC Accession 0052766)

This WHITEFOOT cruise was planned in response to the ARGO MERCHANT oil spill. Objectives were to deploy 1 current meter mooring (#123) and 1 tripod (#121) to determine subsurface flow pattern over Nantucket Shoals to predict and hindcast oil spill trajectories and monitor bottom conditions, particularly to observe any oil sinking to the bottom. To obtain bottom grab samples at several shallow locations to determine if any oil was reaching the bottom.
