ISW offers the measurement of microstructure and turbulence as well as standard hydrographic parameters in marine and limnic waters. For the measurements, the MSS profiler system of ISW is used.

Swedish research vessel ALICE in the Gullmar fjord.


Measured parameters:

Microstructure:
  • Temperature
  • 2 x velocity shear (turbulence)
Standard parameters:
  • Temperature
  • Pressure (depth)
  • Electrical conductivity
Optical parameters:
  • Light scattering
Standard parameters:
  • Profiler vibration
  • Profiler tilt
  • Surface detection (at rising measurements)
