Ocean Current Measurements at the Telemark Location, Gulf of Mexico
August 2004 to September 2005
Mr. Wood designed, installed, and serviced one (1) mooring in 1400 meters water depth for 13 months, returning 100% data, including complete, high-resolution observations during Hurricanes Ivan and Katrina.
Hurricane Katrina passed directly over the mooring at the time of near-peak wind intensity, providing a high-resolution measure of the full water column response to hurricane forcing. These data have since been used to assist development of new metocean criteria for the Gulf of Mexico. Norsk Hydro E&P Americas, Houston.
