15 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Data QA—Check List Use WaveView to verify data quality ( *.wvs file) Check for reasonable parameters in the time series (Hs, Tp, Dp) Check error log   Check for agreement in 1-D spectra   Check for reasonable high frequency cutoff   Check for reasonable directional spectra

16 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check for reasonable parameters in the time series (Hs, Tp, Dp) Much Lost data = ISSUE! Much Lost data = ISSUE!

17 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check Error Log (wmerrlog.txt) Near surface bin (#2) has low percentage of good samples. 90 % good is required to complete processing of Velocity Array

18 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Reasons for bad near surface bin in array? Check quality of ensemble averaged velocity data Check for excessive tilts Check readings of pressure sensor relative to surface track

19 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check Quality of Ensemble Averaged Velocity Data Low Error Velocity = Good near surface data

20 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check For Excessive Pitch + Roll <5 degrees pitch + roll = Good hardware deployment

21 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check readings of pressure sensor relative to surface track (1) Re-Process using expert option – use surface track for depth Compare results with pressure sensor based depth measurement (ascii log file format 5) Calculate difference (excell)

22 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check readings of pressure sensor relative to surface track (2) Result = 1217 mm average difference (pressure – surface)

23 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Re-Process (1) Add pressure sensor offset mm Use pressure sensor for Depth Use bottom 2 bins in array

24 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Data QA—Check List Use WaveView to verify data quality ( *.wvs file) Check for reasonable parameters in the time series (Hs, Tp, Dp) Check error log   Check for agreement in 1-D spectra   Check for reasonable high frequency cutoff – EXPECT ERRORS in Default Values – Deeper Bins –More Signal Attenuation – Must decrease high frequency Cutoff   Check for reasonable directional spectra

25 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check High Frequency Cutoff Incorrectly set high frequency cutoff will result in high Hs, incorrect Tp, incorrect Dp Proper HF cutoff for Vspec = 0.38 hz

26 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Re-Process (2) Add pressure sensor offset mm Use pressure sensor for Depth Use bottom 2 bins in array Change High Frequency Cutoff to 0.38 hz

27 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Data QA—Check List Use WaveView to verify data quality ( *.wvs file) Check for reasonable parameters in the time series (Hs, Tp, Dp) Check error log   Check for agreement in 1-D spectra   Check for reasonable high frequency cutoff   Check for reasonable directional spectra

28 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check for reasonable parameters in the time series (Hs, Tp, Dp)

30 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check for agreement in 1-D spectra / Check for reasonable high frequency cutoff

31 RD Instruments Home of the ADCP Measuring Water in Motion and Motion in Water Check Directional Spectra
