This report documents 7 ADCP deployments in Faroese waters in 2014 – 2015. MicroCats are included in three of the deployments. An Aanderaa is included in one deployment. Each deployment is identified by an 8-character label where the
first four characters indicate the site while the last characters show year and month of deployment. Most of the moorings were located at standard (Nordic WOCE) sites.
At sites NWFB, NWFC, NWNB, NWNG, and NWSC RDI ADCPs were placed in the top of single-point moorings. At sites NWNA, and NWSH “shallowwater” rigs were used, where an RDI ADCP was placed on the bottom inside a protective aluminum frame.
For each deployment, the ADCP measures the velocity averaged over a number of depth layers (“bins”). At 20 minute intervals, the ADCP records the data from all bins into “ensembles”.
An Aanderaa current meter on the mooring line below one of the ADCP recorded speed, direction and temperature at 60 minutes intervals. The MicroCats attached to three of the ADCPs recorded temperature, salinity and pressure every 10 minutes.
