Finds best advance of conductivity relative to temperature in CTD data by minimising salinity spikes
Updated 3 Oct 2008

View License

Salinity spiking in CTD data is caused by non-simultaneous sampling of conductivity and temperature.

find_cond_advance.m finds the best advance of conductivity relative to temperature to compensate for non-simultaneous sampling and thus minimise salinity spiking. The salinity calculated using this best advance value is also returned.

A .mat file of sample data is included in the package.

[bestAdv,bestSal,advances,goodness,binIndex] = find_cond_advance(t,c,p,-4,4);
