ODIM BROOKE OCEAN RECEIVES MVP™30-350 ORDER
(Dartmouth, Nova Scotia - November 24, 2009): ODIM Brooke Ocean has received an order for an ODIM MVP™30-350 from Oregon State University.
The College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) of Oregon State University (www.coas.oregonstate.edu) has placed an order for an ODIM MVP™30-350 moving vessel profiling system. COAS is a leader in the study of the Earth as an integrated system, providing scientific understanding to address complex environmental challenges through field experiments, theoretical investigations and numerical modeling and simulations. The MVP30-350 will be used to assist COAS to gather oceanographic information to support their research.
The ODIM MVP™30-350 is a self-contained, electrical "smart" winch which collects oceanographic data using various third party sensors while the vessel is underway at speeds up to 12 knots. The MVP30-350 for COAS will be outfitted with AML microCTD and Seapoint Fluorometer sensors.
The MVP30-350 will initially be installed on OSU's small vessel, R/V Elakha, but is eventually destined for the UNOLS ship R/V Wecoma for further oceanographic research.
