We would like to thank David Farmer and his group for a long standing, pleasant, and highly productive collaboration, which included the gathering of these data. The captain and crew of the C.R.V. Parizeau kept the ship operating, and thus enabled the success of this effort, despite injury, steering failures, and bad weather. Dr. T. Boyd helped greatly in collecting the data at sea; T. Lehman and J. Osse were instrumental in preparing the floats. This work was supported by ONR Grants N00014-90-J-1253, N00014-94-l-0024, and N00014-93-l-1085 and NSF Grants OCE9301835 and OCE9213915 to the University of Washington, and by ONR Grants 91-J-1964 and 90-J-1443, Canadian National Science and Engineering Council grants, and the Panel on Energy Research and Development Grant 6B2005, all to the Institute of Ocean Sciences.
