SonTek/YSI, Inc. has sold a 250 kHz Long Range SL-ADP system to the National Ocean Service
. The instrument will be used to measure horizontal current profiles in support of the P.O.R.T.S. system near Anchorage Alaska.
This brings the total number of SL-ADP systems in NOS to 6 with several of them in operation in both Alaska and the Delaware Bay
. SonTek’s Chris Ward stated
: “We have been supplying up-looking current profiling systems to NOAA for over 7 years, and we are happy to see that their PORTS systems are now taking advantage of our long experience in side-looking systems as well”
