is capable of measuring the turbulence microstructure, from 10 m depth
up to 500m, and falling at the speed of 0.5 - 0.7 m/sec. At the top of 2
m long pressure case, the profiler is equipped with two microstructure
shear probes, fast-response temperature sensor, chlorophyll / turbidity
sensor, CTD sensors and three accelerometers. The data collected with
sampling rate ranging from 64 - 512Hz for different channels are
transmitted to the ship-board PC by a submergible Kelvar signal cable in
developed for coastal research purpose to 100 m depth, is able to move
down-ward and upward in water for measurements. Downward deployment
allows user to get the data in-between 3 -100 m with a stable falling
speed. In case of upward profiling, the profiler implements measurement,
simply by adding syntacticfoam (buoyant) and ballasts stability. It
measures water upward from 5 m above the sea bottom to the sea surface.
The releaser is available as an option to release the instrument at the
pre-set target depth. The observation is capable of being monitored in
real-time by a ship-board PC through submergible cable.
