Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP)

Return to Text

This ADCP and the instrument platform it is mounted on are anchored to the seafloor at a coastal observatory off of the southern shore of Martha's Vineyard. The ADCP measures water movements in the 40 feet of water above it and sends continuous data to the observatory's shore lab. (Jayne Doucette)
