SeaCycler Data

- Data Collected by SeaCycler (2011-05-26)

Recent data collected by SeaCycler in 1100 metres of water off the coast of Nova Scotia

From April 16. to May 26. 2011 the development team at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography deployed the surface piercing profiler, SeaCycler, 250km southeast of Nova Scotia on a depth of 1100m for its second open ocean test. The SeaCycler operated continuosly during that time and profiled 644 times through the upper 150m of the ocean's water column on a single alkaline battery pack.

Map of Deployment SiteMeasurements are from the SBE52 sensor on the profiling instrument float, a SBE37-IM MicroCat at 294m depth below the winch float.
