Description

Shipboard acoustic Doppler current profilers (SADCPs) measure the horizontal components of the ocean current vector. This collection assembles post-processed and publicly available SADCP data collected by underway research ships on multiple oceanographic cruises into an organized, quality-controlled, metadata rich and searchable database of ocean current transects (slices of the upper ocean between 2 points on the Earth). The collection consists of regional NetCDF files where data are organized by a unique transect number. The data and file can be used in conjunction with the pysadcp software available at https://github.com/ocesaulo/pysadcp.
