NEAREST 1 - Current meter - QC dataset


Instrument: Nobska MAVS-3 3 axis acoustic current meter
Investigator: Beatrice Giambenedetti (INGV)
Project: NEAREST
Observatory: GEOSTAR

Citation: Giambenedetti, Beatrice. (2007). Current meter dataset (Nobska MAVS-3 @ 5 Hz) from INGV/GEOSTAR seafloor platform during NEAREST project in Iberian Margin site (Gulf of Cadiz), part of EMSO network.

Abstract: High-frequency current meter (MAVS3 made by NOBSKA manufacturer) was mounted on GEOSTAR to collect data with high sampling rate. It provided punctual current measurements to monitoring the hydrodynamic condition inside the station.

Purpose: The high sampling rate (5Hz) was used in order to better observe possible influences of seawater currents on seismological data.

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
