Oceanography

Marscco can assist with various aspects of biological and physical oceanography. These include:

  • Depth-stratified water currents velocity/direction using seabed-moored and/or vessel-mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs)
  • Oceanographic profiling (T, S, DO and chlorophyll a) using vessel-deployed Conductivity-Temperature-Depth probes (CTDs)
  • ADCP-based backscatter intensity as proxy of water turbidity
  • Identification of mixed layer and photic zone depth
  • Upwelling assessment via vertically-stratified data and analysis of sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) from composite satellite images
  • Water nutrients and heavy metals
