The data in this collection were recorded with Geodyne 850 current meters and VACMs. The VACM data originally were recorded with a sampling interval of 15 minutes. All of the time series in the VACM files have been filtered and decimated to one point per hour. The filter is a low-pass cosine-lanczos filter with half-amplitude at 10 cycles per day. The filter removes completely all frequencies higher than 12 cycles per day; frequencies lower than 8.7 cycles per day are passed unattenuated.

The Geodyne meters recorded with a sampling interval of one hour; in these files the time increment remains unchanged.
