There are 2 basic types of measurements:
Underway measurements: fluorometry, salinity and temperature are collected at a depth of 3m with a flow-through system which also includes continuous atmospheric climate measurements.
Underway acoustic doppler current profiles were collected using a RDInstruments Workhorse 300kHz and RDInstruments Ocean Surveyor 75kHz ADCP.
