MetadataShow full item record
Central equatorial Pacific Ocean
This data set contains 23 individual NetCDF files, each containing subsurface zonal and meridional velocity profiles (along with time/space coordinates) measured by shipboard ADCP.
Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) from 23 equatorial crossings in the central Pacific Ocean over 2003-2012 of the SSV Robert C. Seamans, operated by the Sea Education Association (SEA), Woods Hole, MA. The data are described further, compared with other observations, and used in an analysis of the Equatorial Undercurrent (EUC), in the following paper: The Equatorial Undercurrent and TAO sampling bias from a decade at SEA.
