Abstract: The data set consists of upper ocean current observations from shipboard
ADCP collected on all cruises of the U.S. Antarctic supply vessel ARSV Laurence
M. Gould beginning in September 1999. The data are collected and processed by
Dr. Teresa Chereskin, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, as part of a
National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs sponsored project to
monitor the Antarctic Circumpolar Current in Drake Passage.

Quality The data have been calibrated and quality controlled. Elimination of bad
profiles is primarily due to bad weather, low scattering conditions, or some
speed/heading/sea state conditions that entrain bubbles under the transducer.
