Real-time wave data from a hurricane

The US Army Corps of Engineers reported real-time wave data from Hurricane Earl in 2016 using an array of six Nortek acoustic Doppler current profilers and wave gauges cabled to the Field Research Facility in Duck, North Carolina.

Nortek USA met engineers at the US Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility in Duck, NC, as engineers were busy preparing the Aquadopp Profilers shown here for nearshore deployment. These two instruments were to become the latest addition to the Duck cross-shore array, which already included four Nortek Acoustic Waves and Currents (AWAC) sensors and two Waverider buoys. The Aquadopps were deployed at depths of 2 m and 3 m.
