Velocity data with LADCP

  1. Please see the Data book Volume1Volume2Volume3 for details of data.

  2. Data process
  3. Vertical profiles of velocity are obtained by the inversion method (Visbeck, 2002).

  6. File format
  7. Data file contains one line header (meta data) followed by 305 lines data for 118 profiles.

    Header line
    The file is in fixed length, comma separated text file format.
    Column 1 : cruise code
    Column 2 : WHP-ID
    Column 3 : Station name
    Column 4 : date (mm/dd/yyyy)
    Column 5 : time (hh:mm) in UTC
    Column 6 : latitude
    Column 7 : longitude

    Data lines (305 lines)
    The file is in fixed length, space separated text file format.
    Column 1 : depth
    Column 2 : zonal velocity (m/s)
    Column 3 : meridional velocity (m/s)
    Column 4 : standard error (m/s)
    * The '99.999' in the velocity data means underground and no available.
