Development of a Fixing Apparatus Available to Mount-and-detach ADCP on a Small Vessel Hwang, Sang-Chul; Jeon, Dong-Chull; Kang, Jae-Hoon; Kim, Cheol-Soo;
A portable apparatus mounting Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP) to any small boat was developed to effectively measure currents in shallow and narrow coastal seas like the west coasts of Korea. Characteristics of the apparatus is that an underwater fish-shaped body protecting an ADCP is designed to reduce the drag during the cruise, which can be freely mounted and detached from a boat with a clamp. Several cruise outputs prove themselves that the apparatus is properly designed for the intended purpose, to minimize air bubbles and to control the submerged depth of the sensor.
