Two Wave Glider solutions for Meteorology and Oceanography are available.. The base model (METOC Currents) gathers weather observations, meteorology and ocean current data. The expanded model (METOC Plus) adds wave and water sensors to measure waves (height, direction, period and spectrum), and water temperature, dissolved oxygen and salinity.
|Sensor||Model||Description||METOC Currents||METOC Plus|
|Weather information (air temperature, wind speed & direction, and barometric pressure)||X||X|
|Measurement of ocean currents at the surface and in bins to the sensor’s maximum depth||X||X|
|Wave height, direction, period and spectrum||X|
|Water salinity analysis through collection of conductivity, temperature and density; dissolved oxygen measurement||X|
Both the METOC Currents and the METOC Plus models are offered with Teledyne RDI ADCPs operating at one of two acoustic frequencies:
