Shipboard ADCP figures from the Indian Ocean : Joint Air-Sea Monsoon Interaction Experiment, JASMINE


During April-June 1999, the NOAA research vessel Ron H. Brown participated in "JASMINE" (Joint Air-Sea Monsoon INteraction Experiment)in the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean. During the cruise, a hull-mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) measured the velocity of the upper-ocean currents below the ship. The ADCP ocean veclocity data from JASMINE and a mooring recovery cruise prior to Jasmine (called "pre-jasmine") are shown in contour and vector plots, available through links in the table below. The link is to a gif image: postscript is available from the figure.

Please see the JASMINE web site for more information regarding this project.

These data were collected by Peter Hacker and Roger Lukas, and processed by Julia Hummon, (all at University of Hawaii). Research was supported by NSF Grant No. ATM-9820531 and NOAA Coop. Agmt. #NA67RJ0154. The chief scientist on this cruise was Chris Fairall (ETL). All plots were made with matlab.
