A Coating of Many Colors

After a year in the Red Sea, this tripod is sporting a colorful growth of coral. It was recovered by John Kemp and Jim Ryder during a cruise led by Tom Farrar. The tripod's acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) measured water velocity over the Red Sea shelf as part of a study headed by Steve Lentz and Jim Churchill through a collaborative partnership with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia. The data are being analyzed to better understand the dynamics of wind-driven currents and surface wave propogation over the Red Sea shelf.
