2011-12 ADCP Data Now Available
Two moored ADCP were deployed from November 2011 to April of 2012. These buoys were deployed at our B2 and B3 buoy sites (western average boundary of the Gulf Stream and inshore of the current). Data was collected with more ensembles (~1 every 10 minutes.). The raw data with no corrections or verifications of integrity is now available. It can be downloaded in the Resource Measurement and Modeling area.
