Overview
The Doppler Current Profiler Sensor (DCPS) is a medium-range, 600kHz current profiler smart sensor. It features innovative development of the acoustic profiling ability to collect high-quality current information also on moving and tilting platforms.

Cables
Available with a 300m, 4500m, or 6000m depth rating, the DCPS can be connected to a SeaGuardII or third-party systems through the RS-232 interface. This makes the DCPS the ideal cost-effective solution for obtaining current profiles in systems already containing a data logger.

Benefits

  • Built-in solid state 3-axis tilt-compensated compass
  • Heading and tilt compensation for each ping
  • Insensitive to fouling
  • Low maintenance needs
  • Direct readout of engineering data
  • Output interval from 30 seconds to 2 hours
  • RS-232 output for integration to most third-party data loggers
  • Configurable output for easy integration
  • Cell size selectable from 0.5 to 5 meters
  • Up to 150 individual cells divided into three columns

From Assessment to Angler: Continual Research Ensures Lake Erie Remains a Beacon of Freshwater Fishing

Lake Erie is well known for its abundant recreational fishing. Anglers come from across the country to try their luck at the “walleye capital of the world” and search for other freshwater species, such as bass, perch, and steelhead trout.  As one of the world’s largest freshwater fisheries, much effort is made behind the scenes to maintain fishing opportunities for visitors to enjoy year after year, efforts that often go unnoticed by the public. One of the lake's most important economic and tourism centers is the city of Sandusky, home to the Sandusky Fisheries Research Station . As part of the Ohio Division of Wildlife, the unit serves as a base for assessing fish populations and managing harvest with partner agencies from around Lake Erie.

High Definition Stream Surveys: Informed Management in Local Waterways

When it comes to environmental monitoring, new stream survey methodologies have revealed a great deal about water quality and streambed conditions over time. Such information can be particularly important in leading restoration initiatives and prioritizing management decisions. Historically, stream surveys have been conducted at a single point along the stream, with data then extrapolated for miles up and downstream. However, Brett Connell, Hydrologist and Director of Sales at Trutta Environmental Solutions, started developing a more intensive stream survey format in his master's program in 2010 at the University of Tennessee.

Climate Change and Microplastics: Monitoring Lake Champlain

Most people go to Lake Champlain for its exceptional views and thrilling boating, but it’s also home to a wide variety of interesting aquatic research projects. From studying microplastics to thermal dynamics of the lake, Timothy Mihuc, director of the Lake Champlain Research Institute (LCRI) at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh (SUNY Plattsburgh), has spent his career studying aquatic ecosystems.  As an aquatic biologist, he’s the main investigator on Lake Champlain’s research studies while also managing their grants, employees, and their hands-on buoy work.  Over the years, LCRI has received a number of environmental grants that aid in its monitoring research.
