The High Resolution Profiler (HRP) is one of the only oceanographic instruments that is capable of measuring turbulent velocity and temperature fluctuations in the abyssal ocean. It is a unique device, and consequently specialized communications, data conversion and analysis software are employed to examine the data it collects. This document describes a major upgrade of the software and hardware systems used to process data from the HRP. The bulk of the conversion occurred in 1996 prior to the Brazil Basin Tracer Release Experiment (BBTRE). During the upgrade process, a Graphical User Interface (GUI) was designed and implemented for accomplishing routine HRP data processing tasks.

Estimating hydrodynamic roughness in a wave-dominated environment with a high-resolution acoustic Doppler profiler Lacy, Jessica R.; Sherwood, Christopher R.; Wilson, Douglas J.; Chisholm, Thomas A.; Gelfenbaum, Guy R. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-06-30)Hydrodynamic roughness is a critical parameter for characterizing bottom drag in boundary layers, and it varies both spatially and temporally due to variation in grain size, bedforms, and saltating sediment. In this paper ...
