LADCP repeat hydrography

On this web page, you will find links to measurements of quasi-instantaneous vertical profiles of horizontal ocean velocities taken with a Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (LADCP) as part of the US component of the CLIVAR/CO2 repeat hydrography program. Final LADCP processing was performed using the LDEO processing software by Andreas Thurnherr (Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University) through 2008 and by University of Hawaii "currents" group (Firing/Hummon/Ascani) since 2009. This project is supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) grants OCE-0223869 and OCE-0752970. The continuous-in-time upper-ocean velocities from Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (SADCP) are available on the University of Hawaii "currents" group's website.

Click on the checkboxes in the table on the right for the cruise-data that you want. The station locations will appear on the map below. You may zoom in/out and drag to re-center the Google map. Clicking on a station will bring up a popup with a profile plot and links for downloading the data. The links in the LADCP column provide technical information and access to the entire cruise's data. The CCHDO column links to CLIVAR & Carbon Hydrographic Data Office website which contains other hydrographic data (CTD etc.).
