RDI ADCP Raw Data

The RDI Ocean Surveyor ADCP is a hull-mounted device installed on many research vessels. The Ocean Surveyor can measure currents and suspended materials through the water column and along the ship’s path. Source files are collected one of two ways: by the manufacturer software VmDAS, or by the University of Hawaii Data Acquisition System (UHDAS). Files from both systems are sorted and zipped.
