We have a Continental ADCP on a mooring, and we need to go on with quality control procedures of the data.
I have read a lot on the manuals and forum, and everyone is referring to the SNR and the correlation values for that, together with the tilting angle.
But I cannot find the formula to calculate the SNR. If I understand right, we need to use the amplitude (in counts) stored in the .a1 .a2 and .a3 files and convert them to dB, but I cannot find the right formula for that — the same for the correlation.
Regarding the tilt, in the .sen files, we have heading, roll, and pitch. How I can pass from these to the tilt angle
Our Continental is set up on ENU, so no Transformation is needed, I suppose.
Any help is more than welcome.
Thank you in advance.
