Description

SOIREE Cruise Track - Drift
Lagrangian corrected cruise track

Data are:
- Date
- Time

- Eastward position of shiptrack
- Northward position of shiptrack
(A plot with Eastward position on the x-axis and Northward positionon the y-axis gives the ship track over the period of the experiment)

- Eastward drift calculated from the velocity in the top-bin of the ADCP
- Northward drift calculated from the velocity in the top-bin of the ADCP
(A plot with Eastward drift on the x-axis and Northward drift on the y-axis gives the drift inferred from the ADCP data)

- Corrected ship-track (Eastward component)
- Corrected ship track (Northward component)

All the data is expressed in kilometers relative to the beginning of
the first release, which was taken to be at 09-Feb-1999 08:54 (GMT)
