: MR17-05C
: Processed (PI)
Vertical profiles of microstrucre in seawater were collected by using free-falling instrument of TurboMAP-L. The 512-Hz raw data of current shear and temperature gradient are processed into a 2-sec segmented turbulent variables (approx. 1 m pitch) after demean and despike procedures (ε,χ, etc).

(ascii-formatted processed data; 133 files)

Contents & Varaibles:
energy dissipation rate,
tempeature gradient variance dissipation rate,
turbulent diffusivity,
vertical heat flux.
