Stratus is a long term investigation by WHOI of boundary layers in the eastern tropical Pacific. This experiment began in 2000 and continues today. Each year a single mooring containing subsurface current meters, temperature sensors and other instruments, plus a met buoy, has been deployed for about a year. Our goal is to make all of the current velocity measurements available here. So far we have been able to obtain only those from a nominal depth of 10 meters. If you use these data in published research please acknowledge WHOI and the PI.
These time series were recorded with time increments as short as 1 minute in one case, and as long as 30 minutes in others. We have filtered and subsampled the series with increments shorter than 30 minutes, using a sharp cosine-Lanczos filter. All of the files available here have a time increment of 30 minutes.
