Experiment name: AWI Antarctic moorings Principal Investigator: E.Fahrbach Affiliation: Alfred Wegener Inst. Mooring name: AWI214-4 Mooring position: 71.055 deg S, 11.747 deg W Instrument depth: 301 meters Seafloor depth: 385 meters Times: 1400 18 Dec 1992 to 0800 19 Dec 1994 Time increment: 120 minutes Instrument type: Aanderaa RCM parameter min mean max stddev days dir (deg true) 36.90 192.88 352.60 62.93 730.83 temp (deg C) -1.95 -1.85 -1.20 0.04 728.42 salinity (psu) 33.30 34.34 34.69 0.32 728.42 The speed series appears to contain a large number of wrap-arounds. These are instances in which the speed rotor's turn count has exceeded 1023 and has reset to 0, thus registering as a much lower value than the actual speed. Wrap-arounds are quite hard to identify in a record with a 2-hour interval, and we have not attempted to do so in this case. This speed record is essentially unusable and we have not included it here. The file contains just direction, temperature, and salinity. Temperature and salinity end 2.5 days earlier than direction, at line 8741.
