attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The Nortek Aquadopp Current Meter A2L5379 AQD8389 was deployed on 2016-05-16 at Barkley Canyon Head. The Barkley Canyon Head is located within Barkley Canyon, where benthic processes and sediment dynamics are observed. This device is a Current Meter. Acoustic Current Meters (ACM) measure current speed and direction, using the Doppler Effect. Aquadopp current metres have a sensor head that contains 3 acoustic transducers, a tilt sensor, a temperature sensor and a pressure sensor.The instrument transmits a short pulse of sound, and then listens to its echo to measure the change in pitch or frequency. The change in pitch can determine the velocity of the current. It was deployed on a fixed platform. Data from this deployment were archived and made available through Ocean Network Canada's Oceans 2.0 digital infrastructure, with quality assurance and derived data products following established practices.
