Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler


Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler
Nortek AS

From the User Guide: "The Aquadopp Profiler measures the current profile in water using acoustic Doppler technology. It is designed for stationary applications and can be deployed on the bottom, on a mooring rig, on a buoy, or on any other fixed structure. It is a complete instrument and includes all the parts required for a self contained deployment with data stored to an internal data logger. Typical applications include coastal studies, online monitoring and scientific studies in rivers, lakes and channels.

The Aquadopp profiler uses three acoustic beams slanted at 25° to accurately measure the current profile in a user selectable number of cells. The internal tilt and compass sensors tell the current direction and the high-resolution pressure sensor gives the depth -- the the tidal elevation if the system is fixed mounted. The standard 9 MB recorder and internal alkaline batteries are typically sufficient for a 2-4 month deployment."
