Experiment name: KERE (PCM7) Principal Investigator: Z.Hallock PI's affiliation: Stennis Space Center Mooring Name: Mooring E Mooring position: 34.493 deg N, 143.378 deg E Instrument depth: 5025 meters Seafloor depth: 5500 meters Times: starts 19 Jul 1992, ends 25 Jun 1993 Time increment: 180 minutes Instrument type: Neil Brown Acoustic CM parameter min mean max sd days speed (cm/sec) 0.25 6.21 20.93 3.76 341.1 dir (deg true) 1.56 169.17 359.49 62.67 341.1 u (cm/sec) -9.24 -0.02 14.70 3.23 341.1 v (cm/sec) -20.69 -4.28 13.66 4.89 341.1 CMDAC's policy is to include in the WOCE portion of this database only the original measurements, as opposed to filtered data. In this case, however, we have substituted a low-pass filtered version provided by the PI. In its original form this record has a 15-minute time increment. The filtered series provided here have a time increment of 3 hours. The passband is unknown to CMDAC but does exclude the diurnal tides and higher frequencies. This substitution was motivated by the presence of a great deal of high frequency noise in the original record, particularly in the v component. The noise appears to be the result of an instrument malfunction. The high-frequency part of the original record is not useful, and rather than provide data that might be misinterpreted by the unsophisticated user, or exclude the record entirely, we have elected to include here the filtered time series.
