The Profiler Instrument Package includes five sensors mounted on a profiler that traverses from just above the seafloor to just below the 200-m float where it couples to a Docking Station (see figure above). One of these packages will be on each of the two RSN moorings. The five instrument packages are required for measurement of physical oceanographic and chemical processes near the seafloor through the entire vertical ocean water column. These sensors are profiler-mounted to provide temporal and spatial measurements over nearly the entire ocean depth.
