Title:Bottom pressure, vertical acoustic round-trip travel time, and near-bottom currents data collected by Current-and-Pressure-recording Inverted Echo Sounders (CPIES), as part of the Kuroshio Extension System Study (KESS), from 26 April 2004 to 25 June 2006 in the Kuroshio Extension east of Japan (NODC Accession 0073269)
Abstract:This data set contains Current and Pressure recording Inverted Echo Sounder (CPIES) measurements collected during the Kuroshio Extension System Study (KESS) under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation. The measurements were taken between April 2004 and June 2006. Data are from 46 sites. The measured quantities include bottom pressure, vertical acoustic round-trip travel time and near-bottom currents.
