Moored Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data archived in the Institute of Ocean Sciences database, 1998 to present

This dataset contains measurements collected by Fisheries and Oceans Canada's (DFO) Institute of Ocean Sciences (IOS) using moored Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs). The ADCPs were deployed by DFO staff and partner organizations on scientific surveys conducted from 1998 to present. The variables measured include location, time, pressure, current velocity, temperature, sound velocity, echo intensity and correlation magnitude of acoustic signal returns.
