  • Parameter or Variable: height above bottom (calculated); Units: m; Observation Category: in situ; Sampling Instrument: RDI ADCP WH150 kHz; Sampling and Analyzing Method: Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler; Data Quality Method: The ADCP data were quality controlled using standard criteria for filtering out bad data and outliers (Taylor, J. A. & Jonas, A. M. Maximising Data Return: Towards a quality control strategy for Managing and Processing TRDI ADCP Data Sets from Moored Instrumentation. in 2008 IEEE/OES 9th Working Conference on Current Measurement Technology 80–88 (IEEE, 2008). doi:10.1109/CCM.2008.4480848) based on quality controls on individual beams and bins recorded by the instrument each ping (percent good returns below 50%, average echo intensity below 40 (counts) and roll and pitch of instrument exceeding 20o filtered out)..
