Current meter components and other data from fixed platforms from TOGA Area - Pacific (30 N to 30 S) from 12 December 1986 to 28 March 1991 (NCEI Accession 9200261)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Current meter components data were collected from fixed platforms from the TOGA Area - Pacific (30 N to 30 S) from 12 December 1986 to 28 March 1991. Data were collected by the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) as part of the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) project. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F015 Current Meter Components format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f015.html.

The F015 format contains time series measurements of ocean currents. These data are obtained from current meter moorings and represent the Eulerian method of current measurement, i.e., the meters are deployed at a fixed point and measure flow past a sensor. Position, bottom depth, sensor depth and meter characteristics are reported for each station. The data record includes values of east-west (u) and north-south (v) current vector components at specified date and time. Current direction is defined as the direction toward which the water is flowing with positive directions east and north. Data values may be subject to averaging or filtering and are typically reported at 10 - 15 minute time intervals. Water temperature, pressure and conductivity or salinity may also be reported. A text record is available for optional comments.
