Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

In-situ water current velocity measurements collected from moored current meters in the Agulhas Current region of the Indian Ocean from 2010-04-08 to 2013-02-23 (NCEI Accession 0140939)

This data package is comprised of two sets of discrete in-situ current velocity measurements from the Agulhas Current Timeseries mooring array, from April 2010 to February 2013. Each netCDF file in the set represents a single instrument's complete record of east and north velocity components, as well as instrument depth, with respect to time. The records have been edited to remove samples stored during the deployment and recovery periods, and have been corrected for magnetic declination and local sound velocity.
