Saanich Inlet Sill Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 300 kHz Deployed 2019-05-19 (Ancillary Data)

The RDI Workhorse Sentinel ADCP 300 kHz (SN 24447) was deployed on 2019-05-19 at Saanich Inlet Sill. Saanich Inlet Sill is a shallow bottom feature in the Saanich Inlet. The sill influences flow of oxygenated water and seasonal cycles. This device is a Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 300 kHz. Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP) are hydroacoustic instruments, similar to sonars. ADCPs measure current speed and direction at multiple predetermined depths simultaneously. ADCPs use the Doppler effect of sound waves that are scattered by particles in seawater over a depth range. It was deployed on a fixed platform. Data from this deployment were archived and made available through Ocean Networks Canada's Oceans 2.0 digital infrastructure, with quality assurance and derived data products following established practices.
