Figure 4. Tripod frame being deployed in Massachusetts from the U.S. Coast Guard Buoy Tender MARCUS HANNA. The Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) mounted on the tripod frame uses sound to measure the currents from the sea surface to the bottom every two meters. The acoustic telemetry unit developed as part of this project will transmit data from the ADCP to the nearby surface buoy every hour.
