Dataset: Water current readings from the North East mooring in Jervis Bay (off Green Point): 11/07/90 - 29/08/90


A current meter mooring was deployed in the NE section of Jervis Bay (35.0305S, 150.756E) between 11/07/90 and 29/08/90. This mooring held two S4 Interocean current meters at depths of 11.5m and 5.5m.

Each of these current meters provided two datasets. In the first, the meter integrates the signals over 2 minutes every 10 minutes, providing 10 min sample readings. The second decimated the samples using a running mean to provide hourly intervals.

The data provided includes the eastern and northern tidal components, speed, direction and temperature. The datasets providing the 10 minute sample values also give depth and salinity readings.

Users should be aware that there appears to be some data corruption in the later stages of the datasets collected from 11.5m. In addition to this corruption, the decimated hourly dataset relating to the meter at 5.5m is unfortunately missing
