dc.description.abstractVariation in the surface and near surface circulation patterns of Effingham Inlet, a fjord on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada, were measured using Lagrangian drifters over two days during the early spring of 2010. The track data was compared to weather data collected from a local weather station. Drifter deployment sites were north and south of a known sill to assess the influence this bathymetric feature exerts on surface circulation.en_US
