Dataset: AUSSAF (Southern Ocean) Current Meter (Mooring) Data 1991-1995


This dataset comprises the current meter data collected from the AUSSAF Array in the Southern Ocean between October 1991 and October 1992 (pilot data) and between March 1993 and January 1995 (main experiment data). There are 5 moorings with 18 current meters represented in this dataset. Parameters typically recorded in current meter data comprise east-west and north-south velocity components, water temperature, pressure, and salinity at a nominal depth for each current meter. The data have been processed and are archived as part of the holdings of the CMR Data Centre in Hobart.
