KM0417 CurrentMeasurement
Current Measurement Data derived from a Profiling Float deployed at the Lau Back-arc Basin and acquired during the Kilo Moana expedition KM0417 (2004)
This data set was during Kilo Moana expedition KM0417 conducted in 2004 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Charles Langmuir; Investigator(s): Dr. Andreas Thurnherr). These data files are of Text File (ASCII) format and include Current Measurement data that have not been processed. The speed is calculated between the surface fix corresponding to the lon/lat information and the previous valid surface fix. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): LAUB-FLEX: Deep Circulation and Dispersal in the Lau Basin using Floats, Integrated Hydrothermal and Petrological Studies of the Eastern Lau Spreading Center, and Venture Deep Ocean, Lau Basin Expedition 2 of 5, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE02-41716, OCE02-41785, OCE02-41909, OCE02-41913, OCE02-42114, OCE02-42618, OCE02-42675, and OCE02-42902.
