Current meter data from moored current meter in the Gulf of Mexico as part of the Gulf of Mexico Physical Oceanography project from 1984-05-05 to 1989-05-18 (NCEI Accession 8900258)

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

Data consists of Acoustic Doppler Current Profiles recorded in NODC'S F004 format. The data were collected using an Ametek-Straza instrument aboard the R/V CAPE FLORIDA, cruise no. CF-8405 in May 1984. These data were collected by the University of Miami in the Gulf of Mexico and its part of years 1 and 2 of SAIC'S Mineral Management Service (MMS) sponsored Gulf of Mexico Physical Oceanography Program. This program was funded under MMS contract number 14-12-0001-29158. The data were recorded in ASCII format and submitted by Dr. Evans Waddell.

The F004 format is used for data from measurements and analyses of physical and chemical characteristics of the water column. Among chemical parameters that may be recorded are salinity, PH, and concentration of oxygen, ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, chlorophyll, and suspended solids. Physical parameters that may be recorded include temperature, density (sigma-t), transmissivity, and current velocity (east-west and north-south components). Cruise and station information, including environmental conditions of the study site at the time of observations, is also included.
