Note(s): Current and wind data collected during a 124-day study period between August and December of 1991 as part of the SEAKEYS program are used to characterize near-bottom circulation at two study sites widely separated along the longitudinal axis of Hawk Channel, Florida Keys, Currents at both study sites are influenced primarily by local winds and secondarily by the tides, Spectral analysis indicates statistically significant coherence between along-channel wind stress and currents at periodicities of 3-4 days.
