Cabled bottom-moored profiler deployed at Utö
Finnish Meteorological Institute deployed a cabled bottom-moored profiler at Utö.
The profiler produced by an Estonian company Flydog Solutions measures on-line vertical profiles of sea water temperature, salinity, oxygen content, turbidity and different types of phytoplankton. The observations done with the profiler are supported by an ADCP measuring the underwater currents, waves and sea ice cover. Observations are used to understand hydrodynamics, ecosystem functioning and marine carbonate system of the Baltic Sea. The system is built so that it also allows the winter time observations under the sea-ice.
