    • Title: Velocity Data collected from moored Hull-Mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers positioned in Vieques Sound and Virgin Passage in the US Caribbean
Description:
  • Abstract:
    •         Velocity data were collected from Hull-Mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers moored across Virgin Passage between Culebra, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, USVI, and across Vieques Sound, between Culebra, Puerto Rico and Vieques, Puerto Rico (US Caribbean).
            
  • Purpose:
    •         These transport data were collected for the purpose of examining flow through Virgin Passage (between Culebra, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, USVI) and into and out of Vieques Sound (between Culebra, Puerto Rico and Vieques, Puerto Rico) in the US Caribbean.
