Research Data

Model output from runs using the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) over the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-2014. This work was funded by the National Academy of Sciences through the Gulf Research Program grant award 2000006422. ROMS model runs were performed by Centro de Investigación Científica y Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE).


Available variables in the files are:

(a) zonal and meridional velocities from 30 mooring locations in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico and (b) 1-year particle tracks from deployment sites in De Soto Canyon.  Links provided for material.
