Brief descriptionThe East Australian Current (EAC) is a complex and highly energetic western boundary system in the south-western Pacific off eastern Australia. It provides both the western boundary of the South Pacific gyre and the linking element between the Pacific and the Indian Ocean gyres. The EAC deepwater moorings consisted of an array of full-depth current meter and property (CTD) moorings from the continental slope to the abyssal water off Brisbane (26oS).
This report details the quality control applied to the data collected from the EAC array (deployed from April, 2012 to August, 2013). The quality controlled datasets are publicly available via the AODN Portal. The data should be used in conjunction with this report.
