Lowered Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler Software

Martin Visbeck has coded a MATLAB based software package that allows to process LADCP and LADCP-2 data. This is the first version released to the public and I am eager for comments.

How to process the LADCP data using the MATLAB software

You will need the RDI BB/WH ADCP raw data and MATLAB. If you want absolute velocities you have to know the start and end postion of the cast. You can also use an external profile of soundspeed and load Juergen Fischer .par paraemter file.

* means this step is essential, + means this step is not essential, - means an alternative to the one before.
