During descending profiles, the vertical velocity estimates may be incorrect due to interference with beam 3 measurements arising from the nearby CTD sensor. Users should cross-compare these vertical velocity estimates with those derived from the CTD pressure record to determine profiles of possible concern. Good vertical velocity estimates will closely align with the CTD derived estimates. Regardless, there should be minimal impact on the estimates of the horizontal velocities. However, care should be taken with these estimates to confirm this conclusion.

UPDATED, 2019-03-11: Corrected algorithm has been uploaded to the system and is active. * The algorithm supplied by the vendor to calculate water velocities is incorrect. Corrected code is currently in review.
