IOS Moored ADCP Profile Data

This dataset contain observations made by the Institute of Ocean Sciences of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) using moored ADCPs (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler). The ADCPs were deployed by DFO and on scientific cruises between 1992 to present. Variables present in the dataset include Location, Time, Pressure, Current Velocities, Temperature, Sound Velocity, echo intensity, and correlation magnitude of acoustic signal returns.
