This dataset contains shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiles (ADCP) data from a 75khz profiler, vertical profiles of measurements made from a CTD/Rosette system and continuous data from the Multiple Instrument Data Acquisition System (MIDAS). These ancillary data gives additional information about the physical state of the ocean during the Gulf of Mexico Integrated Spill Response Consortium (GISR) G03 cruise aboard R/V Pelican held from November 28 to December 20, 2012.
