Matlab access to ADCP data

CODAS data

getmat: getting all bins and all profiles from a CODAS database; follow this link

  • simple to set up: extract with one executable, load with one matlab file
  • extract every bin and every profile
  • access to many variables (time, position, velocity, amplitude, temperature, heading)
  • requires CODAS binaries to extract data from database

adcpsect: getting velocities from a codas database; follow this link

  • provides more control over extraction parameters;
  • allows averaging over time (or space) and vertical
  • requires only executable program “adcpsect”;
  • only provides time, position, and velocity
  • requires CODAS binaries to extract data from database

UHDAS single-ping data

get_xfraw.m read UHDAS single-ping ADCP data with ancillary data attached; follow this link

  • access to many variables (time, position, velocity, amplitude, temperature, heading)
  • requires CODAS matlab code and correct MATLABPATH

VmDAS (including single-ping data)

read.m: reading ADCP data directly using matlab: follow this link

  • quick, straightforward
  • direct access to ENX and LTA data
  • no editing or processing
  • requires CODAS matlab code and correct MATLABPATH
