Currents of the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions as Deduced from Drift-Bottle Studies
Abstract:Drift bottles were released in the Caribbean Sea and adjacent Atlantic Ocean in 1967 and 1968 from vessels of the Tropical Atlantic Biological Laboratory of the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries (now known as the National Marine Fisheries Service) and the FAO Caribbean Fisheries Development Project. An analysis of the drift-bottle tracks, supplemented by horizontal sections of thermocline depth and dynamic height, reveals variations in the surface currents that are not shown in atlases of average conditions.
