Profiler deployment

All Hands

Technicians aboard the research vessel Melville deploy a wire-following profiler as part of a Global Hybrid Profiler Mooring at Station Papa in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. The Station Papa installation is a key step in the Ocean Observatories Initiative, a long-term, multi-institution project to measure currents and ocean conditions at several locations around the globe. The wire-following profiler will measure current velocity and other conditions as it travels up and down a cable that runs from an anchor to a float 20 meters below the sea surface. WHOI mooring technicians worked with a team led by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to deploy three moorings and three gliders during the 2013 cruise.
