The following records are from the portion of the Bussol 1 ADCP record that was contaminated by surface reflections. We have included these files here because portions of them, recorded during extreme blowover, may be useful in constructing constant-depth current records. The depths shown below and elsewhere on this page are the intended depths of the measurements; the actual depths were different and variable because of blowover. Negative depths denote apparent height above the sea surface due to reflection.
