Title: Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) observations, Georges Bank area, April-June 1995, GLOBEC.
Description:
Abstract:
Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) observations, were collected from the R/V Seward Johnson on two cruises to the Georges Bank region, April-June 1995. Three different ADCP units were used: two broadband at 150 and 600 kHz, and one narrowband at 150 kHz. The broadband 150 kHz unit was used at anchor stations with data reported at hourly intervals. The broad-band 600 kHz and narrow-band 150 kHz units collected data in the along track mode with data reported at five minute intervals. For each time interval, the u and v components of currents are reported at uniform depth intervals throughout the water column. Ship cruise dates R/V Seward Johnson 9506 1995 04 25 1995 05 02 R/V Seward Johnson 9508 1995 06 06 1995 06 16
