Processing by: Stephen Pierce, Oregon State University
(P. M. Kosro also performed some processing steps in the 1998 case)
Date: 16 August 2006
Data quality: Good in general
Missing or poor-quality data have been omitted.

This dataset has a simple simple version of observed velocities, useful
for most purposes. The complete data sets with all configuration and
processing details and diagnostic data (e.g. error velocity, AGC,
spectral width) are available from the NODC Joint Archive for Shipboard
ADCP, or by request from S. Pierce.

Processing steps included: editing of the data using various
diagnostics, calibration of the phase and amplitude errors of the
ADCP/navigation/gyrocompass system by covariability analysis between
currents and ship velocity, reference layer velocity smoothing, and
final production of earth-referenced velocities. For more details
regarding methods, see: Pierce et al. (2000), DSR II 47, 811-829.
