The Acoustic Zooplankton Fish Profiler™ can monitor the presence and abundance of zooplankton and fish within
the water column by measuring acoustic backscatter returns with ultrasonic frequencies. Other sonar targets
realized from the sonar backscatter data include bubbles and suspended sediments.
A powerful tool for scientific research and environmental monitoring in oceans, lakes and rivers.
Can collect data continuously for periods of up to one year at high temporal and spatial resolution.
Available with up to four frequencies in a single transducer housing.
Can be operated in bottom-mounted, upward looking mode or in downward looking
mode from a buoy.
Ideally suited for taut-line mooring operation but many other options available.
Highly configurable sampling programs
An advanced upward looking sonar instrument, mounted on the ocean floor or submersibles for measuring ice draft.
To estimate ice forces, production rates, and mass balances, accurate measurements of ice thickness are essential. The Ice Profiler™ now makes
those measurements much easier to obtain for applications such as:
Offshore Oil Platforms Design of Coastal Structures
Bridges and Causeways Global Warming Studies
Research Oceanography Pipe Line Studies
