Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers

The dataset contains ocean currents obtained by shipboard acoustic Doppler current profilers located at points ordered along a ship cruise with monotonically increasing times. The date coverage of the data set is from 1979 to 2013. Data are stored in the GOCD NetCDF format for vertical profile, i.e., data points along a vertical line at a fixed horizontal position and fixed time, or along a trajectory, i.e., a series of profile features located at points ordered along a cruise track.
