SUBS ADCP BUOYS Long Ranger/Quartermaster

POSTED ON July 18th  - POSTED IN Uncategorized

An improved mooring system for ADCPs and other oceanographic instrumentation.

Mounting ADCPs or other instrumentation in a streamlined buoyancy package reduces the variability caused by mooring oscillation typical of spherical flotation.

Few instruments have the capability of segregating mooring movement from actual data.

Reduced mooring movement decreases noise.

Buoy remains level despite mooring inclination.
