As part of NSF’s Ocean Observing Initiative, the University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), Seattle, WA recently tested Profiler enhancements with McLane Software Engineer Cleo Zani on-site. The team exercised new adaptive profiling commands.
Adaptive commands are transmitted between the MMP, an inductive communication and battery charging docking station at the base of the mooring. Data servers and an on-shore power source are connected via a seafloor cable. After initial dockside testing at Shilshole Bay Marina the team deployed the Profiler in Puget Sound with successful results.
