Velocity profiles (surface to 300m depth) were obtained from three subsurface ADCP moorings deployed in the Gulf of Guinea during cruises carried out from 2001 to 2017 in the framework of the programs «Prediction and Research morred Array in the Tropical Atlantic» (PIRATA ; Bourlès et al., 2008). These moorings were deployed along the equator at 23°W (from 2001), 10°W (from 2006) and 0°W (from 2016). The data since 2010 have been processed internally with a software developped by LEGOS/US IMAGO. This dataset is also be used in the framework of the EU PREFACE program (see http://preface.b.uib.no/).
