Description

The Minerals Management Service (MMS) awarded a contract to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to conduct a study titled: Survey of Deepwater Currents in the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico (often referred to as the NW Gulf Study). The timing and general area of investigation extends the focus of a series of preliminary studies that as a group will provide a basis for effective design and implementation of comprehensive ocean investigations having a goal of in-depth understanding and characterization of Gulf of Mexico (GOM) circulation and dynamics. These prior MMS-funded studies include the Deepwater Physical Oceanography Reanalysis and Synthesis of Historical Data (Nowlin, et al., 2001), the DeSoto Canyon Eddy Intrusion Study (Hamilton, et al., 2000), the Study of Deepwater Observations in the Northern Gulf of Mexico from In-Situ Current Meters and PIES (Hamilton, et al., 2003), and the recently completed Exploratory Study of Deepwater Currents in the GOM (Donohue, et al., 2006). Additionally, the MMS is presently funding a field measurement/data synthesis program titled: A Study of Deepwater Currents in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. Clearly, the NW Gulf Study should be viewed in the context of an expanding multi-program database that is providing insights to initial characterization of dynamical aspects of the GOM circulation patterns that vary significantly in both time and spacshow more
