|Wind currents, tidal streams and plankton off the Northumberland coast|In: Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom. Cambridge University Press/Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom: Cambridge. ISSN 0025-3154, more
Investigations of the water movements off the southern Northumberland coast have until now been confined to the surface region. While important for navigational and similar purposes such investigations can give us no more than an indication of the total water flow along the coast nor can they elucidate the effects of currents on planktonic organisms which spend part or all of their existence away from the surface. It is for the latter reason that the series of investigations of sea surface currents made aboard the R.V. ‘Alexander Meek’ in 1956–7 (Evans, 1957) has now been supplemented by further series at two deeper levels.
