Aqualog Profiler

Autonomous Device for Reporting Vertical Measurements of the Water Column

The Oceanography Center, University of Cyprus is using a state of the art oceanographic instrument aiming to provide high quality measurements of sea state characteristics such as temperature and pressure.

The Aqualog Profiler which has been deployed at the South-west part of Cyprus, takes continuous measurements of the water column from 20 up to 350 meters depth at predetermined times.

The Oceanography Center, University of Cyprus in cooperation with the Experimental Design Office of the Oceanologic Institute of the Science Academy in Russia and the Institute of Marine Research of the Eastern Mediterranean, have designed an experiment where the autonomous profiler combined with a CTD device and special sensors, will be able to provide sea currents, dissolved oxygen and other biochemical element measurements.
