The proposed Channel Island Internal wave
experiment will investigate the ubiquitous
internal tidal waves found on Bight Island
slopes. This experiment will take advantage of
existing thermograph arrays maintained by the
Channel Islands National Park, adding an
instrumented  mooring to record temperature
variations in the water column that will be
correlated to those recorded with a nearby,
bottom-mounted array.


Redundant thermographs were deployed on
Landing Cove mooring at ~0-ft, 25-ft and 50-ft
depths on 10/29/2008. They were retrieved after
1900 hr of data collection. Analysis is on going.
