Folger Pinnacle Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 600 kHz Deployed 2012-08-29 (Current Data)

The RDI Workhorse Monitor ADCP 600 kHz (17434) was deployed on 2012-08-29 at Folger Pinnacle. Folger Pinnacle is an isolated pillar-like feature in Folger Passage, where biodiversity and coastal ecosystems are observed. This device is a Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 600 kHz. Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP) are hydroacoustic instruments, similar to sonars. ADCPs measure current speed and direction at multiple predetermined depths simultaneously. ADCPs use the Doppler effect of sound waves that are scattered by particles in seawater over a depth range. It was deployed on a fixed platform. Data from this deployment were archived and made available through Ocean Networks Canada's Oceans 2.0 digital infrastructure, with quality assurance and derived data products following established practices.
