Abstract:

The autonomous ocean profiler is a vertically cycling instrument for gathering ocean profile data over long periods of time and relaying it through the Argos satellite system which also locates the buoys. The objective of the present program is to develop a profiler capable of reporting sound speed profiles with an accuracy of 0.25 ms over many months of operation and order 50 cycles. It is based on the ALACE float which is an uninstrumented float used to measure subsurface currents through observed displacement between successive surfacing.
