Group: Quality

   Quality control for binary and ASCII data output files takes place as follows. 
     Binary-data: Start time, sample time, time to water and time marks are 
   controlled with rawuls.exe. Days with missing time marks are left out and 
   binary data are converted to ASCII data with sepuls.c. 

   ASCII-data: Start and end time of lowdraftdata (the data acquired at 5 minute 
   intervals) are controlled. Start and end time of highdraftdata (the data 
   acquired at 10 second intervals for 25 minutes at 0000 and 1200 UTC) are 
   controlled. Temperature and pressure data are plotted.

Group: Summary

   This data set consists of Upward Looking Sonar (ULS) data from 11 moorings in 
   the Greenland Sea. Parameters in the processed data files include ice draft, 
   water pressure, and water temperature. Raw data files with sonar travel time, 
   and files with draft frequency of occurrence, are available as well. A single 
   statistical file for each mooring summarizes that mooring’s record. These data 
   were contributed by the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine 
   Research, Bremerhaven, Germany, in 2002 and 2004, as a contribution to the 
   World Climate Research Programme’s Arctic Climate System Study/Climate and 
   Cryosphere (ACSYS/CliC) Project. Data are available via FTP.
