About CTD data

Oceanography CTD instruments collect Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) data. This data may be used to derive seawater salinity and pressure, which enable the calculation of sound speed as a function of depth.

Echoview can use the CTD profile of depth and estimated sound speed to adjust:

The specification of the CTD profile is handled under the calibration settings CtdDepthProfile and SoundSpeedProfile in an ECS file.

We plan to extend this tool to other file formats in future versions. Please send your suggestions and ideas to support@echoview.com.
