Velocity data with LADCP

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

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

    Velocity profile only the range where the bottom track data were obtained.
    For the process the data, only the data within the range are used.
