We thank those whose expertise made the collection of these data possible: Jack Miller, Earl Krause, Steve Bayer, and the master of the R/V Miller, Eric Boget. David Farmer and Eric D'Asaro kindly provided data. Discussions with David Farmer, Eric D'Asaro, Jonathan Nash, Eric Kunze, Matthew Alford, Jennifer MacKinnon, Michael Stacey, and Stephen Pond were all very useful. The comments of two anonymous reviewers greatly improved the manuscript. We are grateful to the U.S. Office of Naval Research for financial support under budget numbers N00014-95-1-0012 and N00014-97-1-1053, and the SECNAV/NCO Chair in Oceanography held by MG.
