This report focuses on data from inverted echo sounders with pressure gauges (PIES) spanning the North Atlantic Current (NAC) east of the Grand Banks collected during August 1993 to July 1995. In this report the collection, processing and calibration of the PIES data are described and plotted. The measurements were made under the support of the Office of Naval Research and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. Other data collected as part of the experiment included conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) hydrographic surveys and velocity measurements obtained with moored current meters, shipboard acoustic Doppler current profilers, and POGO floats. These data were collected jointly by the Bedford Institute of Oceanography and the University of Rhode Island.
