Description 
Summary

The moorings were deployed with 1, 2 or 3 current meters. The time series were recorded at sampling interval of 10 minutes. The data are fully quality controlled for gaps, spikes and spurious data. The raw data are averaged over 1 hour time interval and analyzed to produce spectral analysis, tidal component and residual. The data sets are stored as a raw time series for each current meter (1 data cycle of temperature, speed and direction every 10 minutes). The complete data set consists of 103 current meter days.
