Monitoring the Flight of the Seasoar
WOODS HOLE OCEANOGRAPHIC INSTITUTION MA
Pagination or Media Count:
The Seasoar, an undulating towed vehicle, samples the upper ocean for oceanographic parameters such as temperature, conductivity, pressure and fluorescence. Basic engineering parameters of the vehicle are not routinely measured. We therefore developed an instrument package that measures roll and pitch of the vehicle, wing angle, impeller turns, and pressure. Data collected during the Subduction 2 cruise in March of 1992 are used to describe Seasoars behavior under typical conditions. Attempts to increase the maximum profiling depth by deploying additional faired and unfaired cable are described as well. Seasoar, Towed Underwater Vehicle, Parameters.
