In-situ water current velocity measurements collected from moored current meters in the Agulhas Current region of the Indian Ocean from 2010-04-08 to 2013-02-23 (NCEI Accession 0156669)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data package is comprised of two sets of discrete in-situ current velocity measurements from the Agulhas Current Timeseries mooring array, from April 2010 to February 2013. Each current meter netCDF file in the set represents a single instrument's complete record of east and north velocity components, as well as instrument depth, with respect to time. Each ADCP netCDF file contains a current profile time series for the same periods. The records have been edited to remove samples stored during the deployment and recovery periods, and have been corrected for magnetic declination and local sound velocity.

Lineage information for: dataset
Processing Steps
  • Data Type: water current velocity (measured); Units: meters per second; Observation Type: in situ; Sampling Instrument: current meter; Sampling and Analyzing Method: current meters use a burst average of 120 single-ping measurements at 1-second intervals, taken every 20 minutes. current profiles are hourly ensemble averages of about 40 pings at either 8 or 16 meter bins, depending on instrument frequency.
