Time series current meter and other data from moorings in the North Atlantic in support of the Current and Sediment Transport in Buzzards Bay Field program from 05 July 1982 to 05 December 1985 (NODC Accession 0056730)

A field experiment designed to determine the near-bottom circulation in Buzzards Bay and the transport of fine-grained sediments. The transport of fine-grained sediments is important because some are contaminated with PCB's from inner New Bedford Harbor.
