Currents, temperature, and salinity data recorded continuously from May 12, 2010 to December 16, 2010 from the surface to 1000 meters at a coastal location near the 1600 meters isobath off SW Oahu, Hawaii (NODC Accession 0072305)

The dataset contains ADCP Workhorse Long Ranger current records from 50 to 950m depth and Seabird CTD at 20, 80, 130, 230, 500, 850, and 1000m, recorded continuously from May-Dec of 2010. The raw data files are about 250MB in total. The mooring was sponsored by Naval Facilities Command Engineering Service Center (NAVFAC) at Port Hueneme, CA, and Sound and Sea Technology, with additional instrumentation provided by Makai Ocean Engineering and deployment and planning by Todd Erickson of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, University of Hawaii. The unprocessed raw ASCII files have self explanatory headers. The data are clean and do not require any filtering or de-spiking. The same data are also available as a Matlab file (67MB), which has had minimal processing other than interpolating short time gaps.
