3D current profiles collected at the Camarinal Sill (Strait of Gibraltar), by the Physical Oceanography Group of the University of Málaga (Spain), and the Spanish Oceanographic Institute (IEO-CSIC) of Cádiz. The current profiler is an RDI Longrange Workhorse (75 kHz) embedded in a subsurface buoy, deployed 11m above the bottom, in uplooking configuration. The ADCP has been configured with 6m bins thickness and 30min sampling interval. Dataset contains information on the two horizontal and the vertical components of current speed, and the attitude and pressure sensors.
