Current and temperature measurements from Vector Averaging Current Meters (VACMs) deployed from
September 1992 to June 1994 as part of the Deep Basin Experiment (DBE) measuring the trans-equatorial
water flow are presented. Salinity and temperature measurements from Conductivity/Temperature/Depth
(CTD) casts taken during the mooring deployment and recovery cruises are also presented.
Six mooring sites were occupied with a total of 24 vector averaging current meters and 4 Aanderaa
current meters. Three nominal depths (3900, 4100 and 4300 m.) were occupied on each mooring. Three of
the 6 moorings had current meters at additional depths.
Basic data from the vector averaging current meters are presented both in statistical tables and
graphically as histograms, scatter plots, progressive vector diagrams and spectral diagrams. One day Gaussian
filtered plots are shown in composite displays of variables versus time.
Temperature and salinity profies and e/s plots for 22 CTD stations are presented.
