Direct measurements of the whole water column by RDI ADCP LongRanger

The project in a nutshell

Teledyne RD Instrument’s Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) Long Ranger 150 KHz is a useful instrument to measure the whole water column anywhere in Lake Geneva in terms of the current velocity, direction and backscattering. Setting it up in direct measurement, one can monitor the data coming from the instrument and adjust the parameters if needed.

As the instrument is relatively heavy and bulky, it is convenient and more accessible to install and run the measurements from LéXPLORE platform. In such a way, we would be able to evaluate and assess all the necessary elements for further moorings.
