Storm is Nortek's graphical, wave and current profile data processing software. It accepts raw data files from the Nortek series of Aquadopp Profilers and the AWAC.

Storm smallNortek Storm gives you a quick and precise insight into the current profiler data and wave data you have collected. Supported instruments are the Nortek series of Aquadopp Profilers and the AWAC. The Continental is also supported, but there will be no wave analysis available. If you are going to use Nortek software with the Continental, we recommend the Nortek Surge software, which is Nortek Storm without the wave analysis module.

Instead of writing your own display programs, you can look at the data in four resizable panels showing your current profiler data as a contour plot, time series, or as individual current profiles as well as showing your wave data as spectrogram, wave spectrum, directional spectrum along with the wave parameters.

Nortek Storm allows you to zoom in to understand the time scales, edit out bad data, smooth and decimate, change coordinate system – all with a click of your mouse. When you are ready to move on, just send the graphical views off to the printer or convert the data to ASCII files for further processing in your own programs.

The processing includes SNR threshold rejection, selectable averaging intervals (hourly, daily, custom); and coordinate conversion allowing you to move back and forth among beam, ENU and XYZ coordinates.

Storm requires a valid serial number to run and can be purchased online. The serial number will be sent you by e-mail upon ordering.

A demonstration version of the program is available. This program comes with an AWAC data file and it gives you an idea of the program output and functions.
