SandyDuck '97 Experiment Data Server

/sd97/ data directory page
This page leads to SandyDuck '97 data organized in columnar ASCII files for easy access and use. The database structure uses software originally developed by the Joint Global Ocean Flux (dksrvOF) experiment. Development of the SandyDuck and SandyDuck data server was funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the US Army Corps of Engineers

Please note: this data server is still under construction and additional data sets will be added as they become available.

Data Acknowledgement Policy
The data available here are intended for scholarly use by the academic and scientific community, with the express understanding that any such use will properly acknowledge the originating investigator and sponsor and that all customary courtesies and privileges attached to data use will be strictly honored. To facilitate this policy, data are organized by collecting investigator and supporting documents include acknowledging information. In addition, to help us maintain a reference list of publications, please send citation information to Kent Hathaway at the FRF.
