Hull mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler measuring current velocity as a part of operations conducted in lease blocks GC600 and GC647 on cruise PE14-07, on board the R/V Pelican, Aug 30-Sep 08, 2013
Vernon Asper. 2016. R/V Pelican: PE14-07 Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data, Gulf of Mexico, August 30-September 8, 2013. Distributed by: Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Information and Data Cooperative (GRIIDC), Harte Research Institute, Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi. doi:10.7266/N7FJ2DTF
These current velocity data were determined in support of AUV (Eagle Ray and Molal Mola) and SSD/iSpider operations at GC600 and GC647.
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)
RD Instruments ADCP package using 75 kHz transducer.
