This dataset contains current meter data from Prydz Bay, Antarctica. Current meters were deployed on 3 moorings around Prydz Bay between January 1986 and February 1987. Summary results and deployment details are in the documentation. Temperature and salinity were also recorded. Records are not continuous at each site over this time period. Each mooring contains three or four current meters, ... measuring water temperature, speed and direction, and for some meters conductivity. Moorings 1 and 2 consisted of four Aanderaa current meters with target meter deployment depths of 200m, 350m, 500 m and near bottom. Mooring 3 had three Aanderaa current meters, with depths of 200m, 350m and near bottom.
