Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP
To acquire, review, document, archive, and distribute acoustic Doppler current profiler data sets, NOAA's NCEI Silver Spring and NCEI Stennis, in collaboration with the E.Firing Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler Laboratory at the University of Hawai'i , have established the Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP (JASADCP).
The Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP primarily handles United States national cruises, although it also supports several completed multinational programs, such as the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment (TOGA COARE), the Western Equatorial Pacific Ocean Circulation Study (WEPOCS), and the United States People's Republic of China cruises.
The Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP also acts as a Data Assembly Center for the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) in collaboration with the Japan Oceanographic Data Center (JODC). The growing Joint Archive for Shipboard ADCP currently archives data sets from over 1000 cruises.
