Instrument Series: ADCPA-N

Instrument Name
Velocity Profiler (600kHz)
Science Discipline
Class Description

Velocity Profiler (short range) for mobile assets uses acoustics to measure 3D water-current velocity for a small volume of the water column above or below the sensor. High frequency sound waves (75- to 600-kHz) emitted by the profiler scatter off suspended particles and back to the sensor. The sensor calculates velocity by measuring changes in these sound waves (i.e., Doppler shifts). This instrument is also referred to as an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP).
