Current meter - direction and other data from FIXED PLATFORMS from 1976-05-10 to 1976-06-19 (NCEI Accession 7900071)

Metadata Updated: August 18, 2023

Current meter - direction and other data were collected from FIXED PLATFORMS from 10 May 1976 to 19 June 1976. Data were collected by the National Ocean Service (NOS) and were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F005 - Current Meter Data (Resultants) format.

The F005 format is used for time series measurements of ocean currents obtained using moored current-measuring instruments, principally Aanderaa current meters (manufactured by Aanderaa Instruments Inc.). These data represent the Eulerian method of current measurement, i.e., the meters are deployed at a fixed mooring point and measure flow past the sensor. Position, water depth, and sensor depth are reported for each station. The data record comprises values of current direction and speed at specified date and time. Data values may be subject to averaging or filtering and are typically reported at 10-15 minute time intervals. Other environmental parameters may also be reported. These include: water temperature, salinity, conductivity, and transmissivity; wind direction and speed; and dominant wave direction, height, and period. A text field is available for optional comments.
