The Solomon Sea is an important region for western Pacific water mass circulation, serving as the pathway that connects subtropical and equatorial waters. To observe this water mass transport, nine moorings were deployed in the exit channels of the Solomon Sea as an observational component of the Southwest Pacific Ocean Circulation and Climate Experiment (SPICE). This report details the deployment and recovery of the moored velocity, temperature, salinity, and pressure observations and the subsequent quality control procedures applied to the recovered observations. A summary of the quality controlled data is also given for each mooring.
