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. Current meter data are collected by Nortek Aquadopp Current Meter 8375 (deviceid=521) from a subsurface mooring (as defined in NERC 2.0 Collection L06 Version 13) that included a sediment trap located at the Head of Barkley Canyon, a submarine canyon. Acoustic Current Meters (ACM) use the Doppler Effect to measure current velocities in the ocean environment. 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. Aquadopp current metres have a sensor head that contains 3 acoustic transducers, a tilt sensor, a temperature sensor and a pressure sensor. For more information on the device see
