The WOCE Data Assembly Center for Shipboard Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (SADCP) was co-located at the Japan Oceanographic Data Center hyperlink(JODC) and at the University of Hawaii Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP hyperlink (JASADCP), a collaboration between the US National Oceanographic Data Center hyperlink (NODC) and the Eric Firing ADCP Laboratoryhyperlink.  The JASADCP is responsible for the acquisition, review, documentation, archival, and distribution of shipboard ADCP data sets.

Shipboard acoustic doppler current profilers (ADCPs), when used in conjunction with reliable heading and navigation data, can determine absolute currents in the upper ocean. The ADCP CDROM version 3.0 contains NetCDF and ASCII files of shipboard ADCP data which have been averaged in hourly time spans and 10 m depth intervals. The WOCE cruises are uniquely identified and all inventories, cruise track plots, fixed-level vector plots, data files, and cruise documentation files are accessible through an HTML interface or by changing to the subdirectory containing the files.

Additionally, calibrated science-ready SADCP data at a sampling scheme as recorded at sea by the ADCP, which typically ranges from 4 to 16 m depth bin lengths of 2-10 minute averages is available at the USNODC (accession number 0000755). It also contains all ancillary data streams such as ship heading and position as well as depth-binned arrays of many parameters such as acoustic return strength and error diagnostics.
