Abstract:
The R/V New Horizon has a permanently installed RD Instruments RD-VM series acoustic doppler current profiler. It is mounted to the bottom of the hull just forward of amidships and to starboard of the centerline. The system utilizes the doppler effect to measure currents in the water column. Current profiles can be produced in up to 128 depth cells, each cell being variable from 1 to 32 meters, to a maximum depth of 700 meters. When the bottom is within range an earth-referenced vessel velocity can be obtained which allows for measurement of currents in absolute terms. Data are processed on an IBM compatible PC. The system takes inputs from the ship's gyro compass and a Trimble 10X GPS/LORAN-C navigation receiver.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.
