ACOUSTIC TRAVEL TIME collected as part of the Sub-Antarctic Flux and Dynamics Experiment (SAFDE) from March 1995 to March 1997 (NCEI Accession 0157074)

Inverted echo sounder (IES) data were collected as part of the Sub-Antarctic Flux and Dynamics Experiment (SAFDE) during March 1995 -- March 1997 conducted south of Australia. The collection, processing and calibration of the IES data are described in the report provided. These are the highest quality versions of the data after the least amount of processing. Also provided are low-passed filtered versions that have been calibrated to a common pressure level in order that the data may be used together more conveniently. The measurements were made under the support of the National Science Foundation grants OCE9204041 and OCE9912320.
