Description 
Summary

The marine current data were collected in the framework of a research program scheduled to reach a good knowledge of the current field on the sea bottom, North of the Strait. The moorings were deployed with 1 current meter. The time series were recorded at sampling interval of 5 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 5 minutes). The complete data set consists of 40 current meter days.
