Joint Archive for Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler Center, Oceanography Dept., School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, University of Hawaii
Data Center Description
The National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) and the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC) in collaboration with the E.Firing Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) Laboratory at the University of Hawaii have established the Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP (JASADCP). The JASADCP is reponsible for the acquisition, review, documentation, archival, and distribution of shipboard ADCP data sets. The archive primarily handles US national cruises, although it also supports several completed multi-national programs such as TOGA COARE, WEPOCS, and US-PRC cruises. The JASADCP is also a Data Assembly Center for the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) in collaboration with the Japan Oceanographic Data Center (JODC).
