The Physical Oceanography Component of
Hawaii Ocean Timeseries (HOT/PO)

The objective of the PO component of HOT is to describe and understand the ocean climate and variability at a deep water site in the North Pacific subtropical gyre near Hawaii. This requires a long time series of physical oceanographic variables, including water mass properties and currents, supporting and complementing the objectives of the biogeochemical component of HOT.

HOT was initiated and funded through grants from the National Science Foundation under the auspices of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) and the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE).
