Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (LADCP) and Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) data, Shag Rocks Passage, Scotia Sea, 2004
Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (LADCP) and Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) data collected aboard the RRS James Clark Ross during cruises JR80 and JR110 in 2004.
Data were used to calibrate instruments on four ocean moorings deployed in Shags Rock Passage, Scotia Sea. Four CTDs were used during JR110.
Data includes continuous ocean profile data (surface to sea floor); temperature, salinity, pressure, current.

ADCP data are available both as Matlab processed data and in the original P* format
JR110 cruise data in accession UEA070126
Data from four CTD stations (018 to 021) - unprocessed .CNV files and processed Matlab binary (MAT-format) files.
The processed files are split into up- and down-casts, fully calibrated and binned to 2 decibars. Included readme files show the processing route and the Matlab scripts run against the CNV files are included in the accession.
