ADCP Mooring Data for the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing PeriodEntry ID: COARE_lso_ADCP_mooring
Abstract: DATA ACCESS
TOGA COARE data is available from the TOGA COARE Data
Information System (http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/coare/index.html) and the
National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO
TOGA COARE was a multidisciplinary, international research effort that
investigated the scientific phenomena associated with the interaction
... between the atmosphere and the ocean in the warm pool region of the
western Pacific. The field experiment phase of the program took place
from 1 November 1992 through 28 February 1993 and involved the
deployment of oceanographic ships and buoys, several ship and land
based Doppler radars, multiple low and high level aircraft equipped
with Doppler radar and other airborne sensors, as well as a variety of
surface based instruments for in situ observations.
Four ADCP moorings (0, 147E; 0, 154E; 2N, 156E; and 2S, 156E) were
operated by Japan's Tokai University during TOGA COARE. The moorings
were equipped with 150 kHz ADCPs (at 300 m, sampling every 15 seconds,
