The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL access_formats String .htmlTable,.csv,.json,.mat,.nc,.tsv,.esriCsv,.geoJson
attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String In 2001, the RVIB NB Palmer and RVIB LM Gould were upgraded to collect a full
suite of data needed for full single-ping editing (i.e. processing single
pings to ocean velocities). LMG0103, LMG0104, and LMG0106 were collected
before the new system was implemented. The single ping data from these cruises
can only be used as an aid for looking at amplitude (backscatter). NBP0103,
NBP0104, NBP0202, NBP0204, LMG0201A, LMG0203, LMG0205, and LMG0302 datasets
contain the complete set of data needed for processing the single ping data.

attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_0_dataset_instrument_description String Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler, encompasses an array of band widths and frequencies
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_0_dataset_instrument_nid String 4157
attribute NC_GLOBAL instruments_0_description String The ADCP measures water currents with sound, using a principle of sound waves called the Doppler effect. A sound wave has a higher frequency, or pitch, when it moves to you than when it moves away. You hear the Doppler effect in action when a car speeds past with a characteristic building of sound that fades when the car passes.
The ADCP works by transmitting "pings" of sound at a constant frequency into the water. (The pings are so highly pitched that humans and even dolphins can't hear them.) As the sound waves travel, they ricochet off particles suspended in the moving water, and reflect back to the instrument. Due to the Doppler effect, sound waves bounced back from a particle moving away from the profiler have a slightly lowered frequency when they return. Particles moving toward the instrument send back higher frequency waves. The difference in frequency between the waves the profiler sends out and the waves it receives is called the Doppler shift. The instrument uses this shift to calculate how fast the particle and the water around it are moving.
Sound waves that hit particles far from the profiler take longer to come back than waves that strike close by. By measuring the time it takes for the waves to bounce back and the Doppler shift, the profiler can measure current speed at many different depths with each series of pings. (More from WHOI instruments listing).

attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String The fundamental objectives of United States Global Ocean Ecosystems Dynamics (U.S. GLOBEC) Program are dependent upon the cooperation of scientists from several disciplines. Physicists, biologists, and chemists must make use of data collected during U.S. GLOBEC field programs to further our understanding of the interplay of physics, biology, and chemistry. Our objectives require quantitative analysis of interdisciplinary data sets and, therefore, data must be exchanged between researchers. To extract the full scientific value, data must be made available to the scientific community on a timely basis.
