Nortek Aquadopp

Vector 3D Current Meter

The Vector 3D current meter collects high-resolution velocity and pressure data in rapidly changing environments. Based on processing schemes originally developed for the Nortek Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter, the system electronics integrates unique Doppler velocity measurements with standard sensors such as temperature, pressure, tilt, and compass. State-of-the-art power management and miniaturized electronics combine in a compact single-canister design that is suitable for real time operation or self-contained deployments. The Vector supports burst sampling, where data are sampled rapidly for a short period of time before it "sleeps" to preserve battery power and recorder memory. The Vector samples pressure at the same time as the 3D velocity. All other sensors are sampled at 1 Hz. The Vector comes with a complete suite of Windows 95/98/00/NT/2000/XP software for deployment planning, real time data collection and data retrieval. As an option, the post processing program ExploreV is available to review, process and interpret your Vector. The processing includes spectral analysis, coordinate transforms, and calculation of complex turbulence parameters.

Paroscientific, Inc.

The Digiquartz® Barometers are used in a variety of precision meteorological applications.  The  Model 760-16B is used as a transfer standard in laboratory and field applications. These standards have been used in an international calibration and intercomparison study originated by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (DMNI).  Median drift rate of the units was -0.007 hPa (-0.0002 in Hg) per year. Pressure hysteresis tests showed a mean hysteresis less than 0.001 hPa.
