Direct read unit for real-time current monitoring…
Workhorse Monitor ADCP.
The Monitor is Teledyne RD Instruments’ most popular direct-reading Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler. The unit is typically bottom frame-mounted and hard-wired to shore to provide real-time monitoring of coastal currents.
The Monitor’s high data accuracy and reliability make it a favorite for deployments in high-volume traffic areas such as ports and harbors, where the data is often integrated into a Vessel Traffic Monitoring System.
Frequency: 300, 600 or 1200 kHz
Max range: up to 160 M
Max Depth: 200M / 6000M
Configuration: Direct reading

ADCPs Measure Deep Water Abyssal Storms
Texas A&M’s researchers Ian MacDonald and William Bryant have completed the first phase of a bottom boundary layer study in 2200m of water in the Gulf of Mexico. They used the Alvin submersible, owned by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, which was equipped with a deepwater 300kHz ADCP to measure 60-90 meters of currents next to the ocean floor.

A report from Teledyne RDI Customer Drs. M. Schroevers of Aqua Vision: High River-Discharge Measurements on the Rivers Rhine and Maas
Three years ago the small country I call home, the Netherlands, became world news as it came close to being flooded by the rivers Rhine and Maas. Close…but most of us kept our feet dry. River-discharge measurements have intensified significantly since then.

Real-Time Current Monitoring
Woods Hole Group has recently installed PORTS (Physical Oceanography Real-Time System) for monitoring currents in the approaches to the main shipping channel at Long Beach Harbor, California. An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP™) is installed on a bottom platform located 1km west of the entrance to the harbor breakwater.
