attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Ocean Networks Canada is a not-for-profit society that operates and manages innovative cabled observatories on behalf of the University of Victoria that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to various scientific instruments located in coastal, deep-ocean, and Arctic environments. Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) data are collected by RDI Workhorse Long Ranger ADCP 75 kHz (17431) (deviceid=23065) from a fixed benthic node (as defined in NERC 2.0 Collection L06 Version 13) located on the upper continental slope of Barkley Canyon, a submarine canyon that contains exposed gas hydrates and their associated ecosystems. ADCPs use the Doppler effect of sound waves that are scattered by particles in seawater over a depth range in order to measure water current velocities. RDI ADCPs use four beams to measure current velocity so that the fourth beam/transducer can substitute for a blocked or damaged beam or it can be used to increase data accuracy. The instrument also contains sensors for temperature, pressure, tilt and compass heading. The RDI Long Ranger monitors currents at 75 kHz and at ranges up to 600 metres.
