Pioneer Array profiling moorings

Surface-piercing profilers with acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) at their base (left) will be at the inshore and central sites of the Pioneer Array. Moored wire-following profilers with ADCPs (right) will be at the intermediate sites along the inshore/offshore line, and at the Array's upstream corners.
