Nortek providing training for vessel-mounted ADCP applications in Peru
Understanding the processes behind coastal erosion and sediment transport
Your in-depth guide to understanding and measuring ocean waves
Nucleus1000 - the core of your vehicle's navigation system
How can an #ADCP tell you which direction a #wave is traveling in? The answer lies beneath the surface. If you're new to wave measurement and want to learn more, our waves wiki is perfect for you. #oceanography
Test campaigns are a crucial part of the process with all of Nortek's instruments and systems. Read more on how Nortek team tested vessel-mounted instruments in the south of France: #ADCP #echosounder #currents

Measuring the erosive force of infragravity waves with ADCPs

Infragravity wave height measured 9ac9f79a8d2046b71b7111e403e6a074

Top panel: Infragravity wave height measured by the Signature1000 ADCPs at 14 m (blue) and 8 m (red) depth during the five-month campaign. The infragravity wave height is higher at the shallower frame, indicating a growth of the infragravity waves. Bottom panel: Wave energy spectrum during the five-month campaign. The horizontal red lines indicate the infragravity frequency band. Energy at frequencies > 0.04 Hz is related to wind-generated waves.
