LADCP current profiles collected during MedSHIP cruise TAlPro2016

This data set contains station data of top-to-bottom oceanic current measurements performed with Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (LADCP) during the MedSHIP cruise TAlPro2016 (Palermo - Barcelona, RV Angeles Alvariño, 18/-8/2016 - 29/08/2-16). The LADCP devices in use were a downward and an upward-looking ADCP of type Teledyne RDI Workhorse Monitor 300 kHz. Station data of zonal and meridional oceanic velocities are reported in [cm/s] on a 10 m vertical grid. The processing of the data has been done using the LDEO LADCP data processing software (
