Endeavour North Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 75 kHz Deployed 2018-06-28 (Current Data)

The RDI Workhorse Long Ranger ADCP 75 kHz (24594) was deployed on 2018-06-28 at Endeavour North. This north section of the Endeavour Hydrothermal Vents includes two moorings to monitor the regional circulation. This device is a Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 75 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.
