: Processed (PI)
Lowered Acoustic Dopper Current Profiler (LADCP) obtains horizontal current velocity at constant vertical interval of 8 m. The data in public are already processed with the LDEO software (Visbeck,2002).See the header for meta information such as start time and position of LADCP observation.

LADCP data:
depth (m)
zonal velocity (m/s)
meridional velocity (m/s)
error velocity (m/s)
