Abstract

Ten current meter moorings (M1 through M10) were deployed in the Drake Passage in January 2006 (DRAKE 2006, ANT-XIII/3) from RV Polarstern on her way south from Punta Arenas to Jubany station (King-George Island) and Bernardo O Higgins Station (Antarctic Peninsula). The moorings were placed along ground track #104 of Jason altimetry satellite. Recovery took place in April 2008 (Drake 2008, ANT-XXIV/3) from RV Polarstern on her way from Bellingshausen station (King George Island) to Punta Arenas. Moorings M2 and M8 could not be recovered (flotation issues). This data set is made of the velocity time series from 8 moorings.
