Juan de Fuca Strait Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 2 MHz Deployed 2019-10-18

The Nortek Aquadopp Profiler A3P9320 AQD14543 was deployed on 2019-10-18 at Juan de Fuca Strait. Juan de Fuca Strait is a large body of water that connects the Salish Sea to the Pacific Ocean. This device is a Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler 2 MHz. Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers 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.
