The report documents three current meter deployments in Faroese waters in 2019 – 2020. The moorings were located at standard (Nordic WOCE) sites.
At all sites RDI ADCPs (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) were placed in the top of single-point moorings. The ADCP's measure the velocity averaged over a number of depth layers (“bins”). At 20 minute intervals, the ADCP's record the data from all bins into “ensembles” as well as the instruments heading, pitch, roll and temperature. In addition to ADCP's the moorings had other recorders attached. The
MicroCat (SBE 37) at site NWFB recorded pressure, temperature, salinity and oxygen. The SBE39plus and SBE56 are temperature recorders only.
