Summary

These data were collected using a 1200 kHz TRDI Rio Grande acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) in mode 12 with 25 centimeter bins from a moving boat. The data were georeferenced with a Hemisphere V102 differential Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver with submeter accuracy. The data were processed in the Velocity Mapping Toolbox (Parsons and others, 2013) to obtain a mean velocity field for each cross section from individual transects at each cross section. These data were collected in support of the US Army Corps of Engineers Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS), and were concurrent with a dye-tracing study. NOTE: Any data assigned a value of "-9999" are invalid or missing data and should not be used [...]
