Abstract: The Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data were acquired constantly over the duration of the Australian 2006 V3 BROKE-West survey. Data presented here are the results of 1/2 hour integrations of the cruise data from the start of the voyage in Fremantle, Australia, to the start of the return leg just north of Australia's Davis Station in Antarctica (-66.56S, 77.98E).

Quality There are numerous breaks in the constant 1/2 hourly record where ADCP crashes, switch offs, or bad data have prevented data complilation. Several bad values are present in the latitude and longitude data, where anomolous ship positions are indicated, these are flagged in the dataset.

ADCP data are given in half hour averages of raw ADCP one per second ping data.
