Ocean currents measured by Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (SADCP) from global oceans as part of the Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP holdings from 8 October 1993 to 16 March 2008 (NODC Accession 0049878)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Absolute U- and V-component ocean current vectors from Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (SADCP), as both a high frequency sampling (nominally 5 minutes with 8 m depth bins) and an averaged subset (hourly time and 10 m depth means), are provided for the global oceans. The depth range is typically from 20 to 300 m although recent technology has allowed penetration to over 1 km. The high frequency samples along with ancillary parameters are provided in the Common Oceanographic Data Access System (CODAS) binary format. The standard (averaged) subset is stored in ASCII. This dataset represents the cruises acquired from 8 October 1993 to 16 March 2008 at the Joint Archive for SADCP, a collaboration of NOAA and the E.Firing ADCP Laboratory at the University of Hawaii. The data have been contributed by both US and international organizations. A total of 125 cruises on 13 ships (1.2 gigabytes) are included.
