NEAREST 1 - ADCP - QC dataset


Instrument: Teledyne RDI WorkHorse Sentinel ADCP 300 kHz
Investigator: Beatrice Giambenedetti (INGV)
Project: NEAREST
Observatory: GEOSTAR

Citation: Giambenedetti, Beatrice. (2007). ADCP dataset (RDI WorkHorse 300 kHz @ 1 profile / hour) from INGV/GEOSTAR seafloor platform during NEAREST project in Iberian Margin site (Gulf of Cadiz), part of EMSO network.

Abstract: ADCP velocity profiles were obtained with 3m vertical resolution through a 300 kHz Workhorse ADCP unit mounted in a upward looking configuration on one side of the GEOSTAR station free from any possible obstacle. The record lasted one year with an hourly sampling rate providing current data of water column above the station.

Purpose: ADCP current profiler allowed to monitor the hydrodynamic condition of a water column only 50 m high, because of the lack of big quantity of particle matter necessary to scatter the acoustical signal.

Quality of data: The QC version of the datasets has been elaborated verifying sensor efficiency through post-calibration and standardized validation procedures. More information about QC procedures are contained in the download file
