This site contains the raw field data associated with "Variability in benthic exchange rate, depth, and residence time beneath a shallow coastal estuary" by Christopher Russoniello, James Heiss, and Holly Michael.

Three Matlab files are included.
1) DifferentialPressure_raw.mat - Contains merged raw voltage data from the differential pressure sensors.
Within this file:
VDRaw contains an 8 column matrix where the 8 columns represent [N/A, N/A, 1s, 1d, 2s, 2d, 3s, 3d]
VDtimeRawText contains a 1 column cell array with a string timestamp for each row of the VDRaw matrix.

2) ADCP_down_raw.mat - Contains merged raw data from the down-looking ADCP, which was used to determine water-column currents.
3) ADCP_up_raw.mat - Contains merged raw data from the up-looking ADCP, which was used to calculate wave-parameters.
Both ADCP files contain a Matlab structure, which includes merged raw data from the ADCPs in the following matrices.
Date - timestamp of measurement
Speed - velocity magnitude (m/s)
Dir - azimuthal velocity direction
Press - pressure measured at sensor head
Temper- temperature (C)
v1E - velocity along east axis (m/s) - west is negative
v2N - velocity along north axis (m/s) - south is negative
v3U - velocity along up axis (m/s) - down is negative
