LDEO's Acoustic Doppler Retrieved

Photos by John Lipsomb

Off Indian Point to retrieve an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler for Lamont-Doherty. We deployed this unit on May 5th and it has been recording a 3-D image of current speed and direction since then. The area around Indian Point and Stony Point is where the north end of the "salt wedge" is often located and there are some very interesting mixing dynamics at this location. One photo shows the actual retreival process and the other shows the ADCP on deck with Indian Point in the background.
