Description 
Summary

The data set comprises a thermistor chain survey in the deep water of the Rockall Trough, to assess the internal wave climate in the upper 200m. Data were collected by the Applied Oceanography Section of the Sonar Performance Division at DRA, Portland. Data are stored in the DRA archive system and have been processed to the DRA standard MIDAS user data file format. The data have been screened for format and data errors and corrected to produce a 'clean' data set.
