  • Hurricane Allen passed over a moored array of instruments recording current, temperature and conductivity in the western Gulf of Mexico in August 1980. The mid-thermocline (200-300m) response was dominated by a wake of near-inertial frequency internal waves, which is described in this paper. (P.M.T.)
