Measures and logs surface waves and ocean current profiles as a function of depth using acoustic Doppler sonar. With connected software produces directional wave spectra and statistics as well as current profiles as frequently as each 30 minutes.
Max depth 60m; profile minimum cell size 0.5m;
Sampling rate 2 Hz (waves), 1Hz (current)
Waves: Hs to 15m, accuracy 1% or 1cm
Current: +/- 10ms-1range; +/- 1cms-1 uncertainty
Development & testing of wave energy converters, test bed for materials, structures and engineered devices designed for harsh wave environment. Land-based multi-trophic aquaculture.
