Successful deployment of the mooring ALBATROSS

The instrumented mooring line ALBATROSS was successfully deployed Saturday, August, 24th 2019 in the North West Mediterranean Sea at a depth of 2450 m.

The data update is available on a daily bases through an acoustic link, allowing information on hydrological properties on the 1500-2400 m water column. The ADCP (signature 100 kHz with an echo-sounder) which has been mounted on the top of the mooring line provides profiles from 400 m to the ocean surface.

Thanks to Nortek for lending the ADCP ; Thanks to MIO, DT INSU, FOF and EMSO.
