This report presents the data obtained by an oceanographic buoy moored 300 nautical miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in a depth of 4316 m for a period of 38 days in August–September, 1966. Data pertaining to ocean current, temperature, and depth of recording units were collected and are analyzed in this report. The oceanographic buoy was launched and recovered without difficulty, and during the mooring period it withstood sea states up to and including sea state 7. Analysis of the data indicated that current speed and depth variations of the recording unit correlated with the semi-diurnal tidal effect.
