Ocean current data measured by the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) aboard the Development Driller III from 2010-05-31 to 2010-07-04 in the Gulf of Mexico in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill (NCEI Accession 0083634)

Metadata Updated: February 26, 2021

Ocean current data were collected by ADCP aboard the Discoverer Enterprise in the Gulf of Mexico in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill event on April 20, 2010. The Development Driller III (DD3) semisubmersible drilling rig was deployed to the site of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill incident to assist in the drilling of a relief well. This record is a summary of ADCP data that the Development Driller III collected from May 31, 2010 to July 04, 2010. The data from this ADCP is raw and unprocessed. Some of the datasets associated with this instrument are still incomplete and will be published as they become available.
