We've received a batch of pictures taken during installation of our two instrument platforms at Barkley Slope. Selected shots are shown below. The Barkley Slope platform (located at the shelf-slope break where the Vertical Profiler System will also be positioned) holds an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) and a Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) gauge. Its junction box also provides communications and power to a hydrophone and a bottom pressure recorder, both of which rest on separate small frames positioned a short distance from the platform.
The Barkley Hydrates platform holds a junction box, which will provide power and communications for Wally, our benthic crawler.
