International current meters
BODC host and maintain an international inventory of moored current meters as part of our responsibilities as the UK's National Oceanographic Data Centre within the framework of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
Its entries have been supplied by more than 20 international organisations & committees responsible for data dissemination and contact details are provided to assist with access to data.
The inventory comprises over 32,000 records relating to current meter deployments by more than 140 organisations in 22 countries. Not all deployments will have returned data and usage restrictions may vary.
Each search provides the means to download a comma-separated file of metadata and, in the case of entries supplied by BODC, the application also provides a direct link to our online data request facility. This eliminates the need for the user to repeat the search to access our data holdings.

You may opt to use a simple or advanced query form. Both forms allow you to build a query from a number of categories, each of which is initially set to a broad default value that you can make narrower.
The simple search allows you to search by
- geographic area
- deployment date
- originator's country and organisation
The advanced search provides additional options, namely
- deployment duration
- parameters measured
- water depth
- instrument depth
You may also opt to include/exclude those entries with known data restrictions and deployments where it is known that the instrument malfunctioned.
BODC also maintains the UK inventory of moored current meter data.
