These current velocity data were determined in support of AUV missions and ongoing mooring and deep sea lander experiments at GC600 and AT357.
Data Parameters and Units:
u = Eastward sea water velocity (m/s); v = Northward sea water velocity (m/s); ; Ensemble #; Date (yyyymmdd); Time (hmmss.ss); N (Latitude, decimal minutes); W (Longitude, decimal minutes)
