Character 'U' means the east-west component of current velocity.
(Positive U value indicates eastward flow).
Character 'V' means the north-south component of current velocity.
(Postivie 'V' value indicates northward flow).
Character 'P' means water pressure in dB.
Character 'T' means water temperature in degree C.
Character 'S' means water salinity in PPT.
