Product Features
  • Convenience: By installing the Mariner directly in the vessel ’s hull, the ADCP is always ready to operate —no need for cumbersome mounting tools and hardware, and the unit is safely protected from external elements.
  • A turn-key solution: The Mariner comes complete with all the tools you need to go straight to work to collect high resolution current profiling data.
  • Precision data: Teledyne RDI ’s patented BroadBand signal processing delivers very low-noise data, resulting in unparalleled fine track resolution.
  • A four-beam solution: Teledyne RDI ’s patented 4 beam design improves data reliability by providing a redundant data source in the case of a blocked or damaged beam; improves data quality by delivering an independent measure known as error velocity; and improves data accuracy by reducing variance in your data.

Seismic illustration Powerful, complex and highly variable surface and subsurface water currents are an inherent component of the world’s oceans. If not properly monitored and incorporated into survey plans, ocean currents can disrupt seismic operations in a number of time-consuming and costly ways. >>full details
