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

Wave height and meteorology measurements are from the Canadian East Scotia Slope Buoy 33nm south of the SeaCycler mooring provided courtesy of the National Data Buoy Center and the Integrated Science Data Management at Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). Special thanks go to Christian Begler at Scripps Institution of Oceanography for his post-processing and presentation work. Displayed Date and Time in AST. Click image for larger version of chart.
