Download Makassar 1 current meter records

Aanderaa data from the Makassar 1 mooring are available here in two formats: OSU stranger format, and netCDF.

OSU Stranger format is an ASCII format in which each line of the file contains the time (UT) of a sampling cycle and the quantities recorded: speed, direction, u, v, possibly temperature, and possibly pressure. netCDF is a compact binary format that contains the same information. Both formats are self-documenting; that is, both begin with a header that describes the data.

The files have been placed in zip archives. Once you download the archives, the files can be extracted in a PC environment with Winzip, Pkunzip, or any number of other zip-compatible applications. Similar applications are available in the UNIX and Macintosh environments.
