Current, physical profile, and meteorological data collected as part of the Exploratory Study of Deepwater Currents in the Gulf of Mexico by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), 2/28/2003 - 4/11/2004 (NCEI Accession 0031345)

The Minerals Management Service (MMS) awarded a contract to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to conduct a four-year study titled: Exploratory Study of Deepwater Currents in the Gulf of Mexico (often referred to as simply the Exploratory Study).

The Exploratory Study field measurement program as called for in the RFP and designed by SAIC's team had three primary objectives:

A) Increase the deeepwater current database and knowledge of deep circulation in the GOM,

B) Collect measurements sufficient to estimate parameters needed to design full-scale PO studies in deepwater regions of the GOM, and

C) Collect current data to test several hypothesis.
