Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)-borne velocity measurements collected over a fringing coral reef near Makua Beach, Oahu, Hawai'i

About this Collection

This collection contains raw data from a REMUS-100 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) deployed over the Makua reef shelf, Oahu, Hawaii on 6-8 September 2013. The dataset includes the vehicle’s location (latitude, longitude), orientation (yaw, pitch, roll), and time (UTC) as well as pressure and velocity measurements from upward- and downward-looking 1200 kHz RDI Doppler velocity logs (DVLs) onboard. Velocity data were collected in ship coordinates. Hydrodynamic surveys consisted of mow patterns with repeated transects in both the cross-and alongshore directions in water depths ranging from 5 to 30 m. The surveys spanned an alongshore distance of about 1600 m, with cross-shore transects ranging from about 400 to 1300 m away from shore. The vehicle maintained a constant depth of around 3 m below the surface and was set to cruise at 2 m/s. For more information on the setup and processing, please refer to Amador et al., 2020 ( View this collection on the contributor's website.
