Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data obtained in Smith Sound support the tidal models for the region, showing strong tidal fluctuations that lead to current reversal of the Nares Strait outflow (Melling et al., 2001).
Scientists use an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler onboard ship to monitor the speed and direction of subsurface currents that have carried the NBST.
Like people feeling their way through a dark room by touching a wall, AUVs keep in contact with the seafloor by "touching" it with sound waves, using an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP).
An acoustic Doppler current profiler uses sound waves to measure current speeds and directions.
The OASIS moorings each comprise a suite of instruments: a thermistor chain to measure temperature with depth, a conductivity-temperature-depth sensor, a fluorometer to measure chlorophyll, a transmissometer for light transmission, meteorological instruments, a spectroradiometer, that measures light at different wavelengths, an acoustic Doppler current profiler, a carbon-dioxide sensor, a PAR (photosynthetically active radiation) sensor, and such system diagnostic information as battery-power levels.
