The OPTOMA (Ocean Prediction Through Observations, Modeling and Analysis) Program, a joint NPS/Harvard program sponsored by ONR, seeks to understand the mesoscale (fronts, eddies, and jets) variability and dynamics of the California Current System and to determine the scientific limits to practical mesoscale ocean forecasting. To help carry out the aims of this project, a series of cruises has been planned in two subdomains, NOCAL and CENCAL. The cruise OPTOMA2 was undertaken, in the R/V ACANIA, for two weeks in August, 1982 and covered part of the NOCAL domain which is roughly 200 km square centered 150 km off the California coast. Hydrographic data were acquired during two legs: Leg I was carried out during the period 31 July to 5 August and sampled an area 130 km cross-shore by 190 km alongshore with additional transects to and from the domain. Leg II was carried out during the period 8 to 14 August and sampled an area roughly 150 km cross-shore by 100 km alongshore. Each leg consisted of a series of parallel transects directed alongshore, separated by roughly 45 km and along which hydrographic stations were occupied every 8.8 km. In addition, there were diagonal transects and tracks to and from the domain.
