Ship underway data collected aboard the James Clark Ross during cruise no JR158 in 2007. Includes data from navigation and vessel-mounted ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers). On the ship the position and observed data were interpolated to five-second records to merge the navigation with the underway data. These one-minute averages are averages over 12 of the interpolated points.

|Lineage:||The LADCP was deployed in a down-looking orientation to allow bottom tracking. The science party was responsible for all configuration and data management. A down-looking 300 kHz RDI WorkHorse (WH) ADCP s/n1855 was mounted on the CTD frame.
Communication for deployment and downloading data was done using BBTALK software on a dedicated PC. Navigation data were retrieved from the ship's Seatex 3D GPS system.
The LADCP data was processed using both the University of Hawaii (UH) and Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) software. The software was run on a PC (AMD K7) under Ubuntu GNU/Linux 6.10 (kernel 2.6.17). Matlab version 126.96.36.1996 (R2007a) was used. For details on data processing see the Cruise Report.
