An experience in using ADCP “Rio Grande 600 kHz” for investigations of the processes on the sea.

During several expedition seasons, starting from 2003, TRD Instruments- Europe provided us with ADCP Workhouse “Rio Grander 600 kHz” gratuitously supporting our studies at shelves of Russian seas. The first studies showed that the instrument designed for measuring sea currents can really have a much broader spectrum of functions. Primarily, it is true for measuring the intensity of the back-scattered signal, that feature allowing one to monitor different processes in the water bulk. In combination with simultaneously monitoring the background current, the ADCP becomes an exceptional instrument offering unreachable earlier possibilities in studying the processes in coastal regions of seas.
