Five current meter moorings (M1 through M5) were deployed in the Norther Drake Passage in April 2008 (DRAKE 2008, ANT-XXIV/3) from RV Polarstern on her way from Bellingshausen station (King George Island) to Punta Arenas. The moorings were placed along ground track #104 of Jason altimetry satellite. They were retrieved in March-April 2009 from RV Polarstern (DRAKE 2009, ANT-XXV/4) on her way south from Punta Arenas to Jubany. The five moorings were successfully recovered. This data set is made of the velocity times series from the 5 moorings.
