Cape Terawhiti ADCP Dataset

Cape Terawhiti ADCP Dataset

Original focus was to capture ocean currents over a spring neap cycle in eastern Cook Strait, a location of strong tidal flows.

 

Location

  • Depth 34 m of water off Cape Terawhiti, Cook Strait, New Zealand.
  • 41o 16.689 S 174o 35.857 E

Instrument

  • Recording Doppler Current Profiler (RDCP, serial number 0200) manufactured by AADI (Aanderaa) Norway.

Setup

  • Upward looking
  • 2 m bins at 1 m intervals
  • 300 sec interval
  • 100 pings
  • Ping interval 740 mSec
