This dataset contains current meter data from Prydz Bay, Antarctica. Four moorings each consisting of four current meters were deployed at various locations in Prydz Bay. Data was obtained between January 1985 and February 1986. Each of the four current meters per mooring measured time, water temperature, speed and direction every sixty minutes. Moorings 1 and 3 also each had one current meter ... equipped with a pressure sensor. All meters on mooring 4 measured pressure and conductivity. The four meters on each mooring were positioned at the intended depths of 200m, 350m, 500m and near-bottom. Eleven of the sixteen current meters deployed were recovered with data intact, and summary results and deployment details are given in the documentation.
