  • Please see theData book for details of data.

  • File name
  • ADCP_A.txt
    ADCP_B.txt
  • Data structure of each profile
  • (1) ADCP_A.txt
    The file consists of 239 profiles on the CTD site. Each profile consists of header and data. The header has three lines representing analyzed site, date and time, and position. The data has 68 layers in which depth, zonal velocity, meridional velocity, and vertical velocity of each grid are stored. Unit of depth is in meter.
    Unit of flow is in m/s. On the CTD station, the CTD station name (e.g. "143_1") is recorded as the analyzed site in the header.
    Mean time and position were calculated and recorded using the ADCP profiles during the CTD operation was made. The "99.999" f in the data represents no available data stored.

    (2) ADCP_B.txt
    Flow data processed in every three minutes are stored in the data set B, where the file name is 'ADCP_B'.
    The data structure is the same as that of the data set B, except for the analyzed site in the header 1.
