Shallow Profiler Components

There are three shallow profilers that will be installed on the cabled observatory. These state-of-the-art two-legged moorings include a 13 ft-across platform at ~ 200 m water depth. The large platform hosts an instrumented shallow winched profiler, which makes several trips a day from ~ 200 meters water depth to just beneath the oceans surface. It also hosts an instrumented platform that includes larger instruments such as a 5-beam ADCP, zooplankton sonar, and a digital still camera. Image Credit: Center for Environmental Visualization, UW.
