The authors wish to thank A. Huyer and R. Smith for providing CTD data from the GLOBEC Long Term Observation Program. P. Michael Kosro kindly provided an analysis of his ADCP data. We thank the LTOP sea-going participants for their help in deploying the surface drifters. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) provided the drifters used in the January 1998 deployment, and the Global Drifter Center (AOML) picked up the drifter tracking costs after the six months provided for by our programs. Support for this research came from National Science Foundation Grants (OCE-9314370, OCE-9730639, OCE-0000733), NOAA Grants (NA67RJ0151, NA86OP0589), and a National Oceanographic Partnership Program Grant (N00014-98-1-0787). JAA received support from the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography at Old Dominion University.
