Description:
Abstract:
Time-series of acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) data were collected using a downward looking Narrowband RDI ADCP at a single location. This data set was measured during the MUSE experiment from MBARI's M2 mooring located outside the mouth of Monterey Bay along the central California coast.
Purpose: This data was collected for oceanographic research.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Null or bad values of ADCP data are listed either as -99.99. If the whole profile consists of bad values, the instrument is either absent or failing to send valid data. The data is flagged as being bad if any beam has a correlation value below 64 or if the percentage good for both 3 and 4 beam solutions are less than 25 percent. The complete data set can be found in a netCDF file included in the same directory as the data files. The netCDF files can be converted to ASCII using the Matlab function 'writeadcp3.m' included in the mfiles directory. The ASCII output stores the U and V velocities in separate files. Each row of the ASCII files contain the time and the current velocity of one component of a single profile. The depths of the center of each velocity bin are listed in the header of the data file.
