Daily-average estimates of turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate in Celtic Sea (49.4N -8.6E) from June 19th 2014 to September 1st 2014

Estimates of turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate (ε) were derived from velocity measurements made by three Teledyne RDI WorkHorse Sentinel 600kHz Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) instruments mounted inline on a buoyancy tensioned mooring (location shown in figure 1). The upper ADCP (S/N 7301) was installed upward-looking in a syntactic buoy at a nominal depth of 23m based on an overall water depth of 145m; the middle ADCP (S/N 3725) was downward-looking in an open frame at a nominal depth of 36m; and the lower instrument (S/N 4015) was again upward-looking in a syntactic buoy at a nominal 54m.
