METOC Wave Glider
Two Wave Glider solutions for Meteorology and Oceanography are available. The base model 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.
Both the METOC and the METOC Plus models are offered with Teledyne RDI ADCPs operating at one of two acoustic frequencies:
- 600Khz for applications requiring higher measurement accuracy and resolution to a maximum depth of 70 meters
- 300Khz for applications extending to a depth of 165 meters, but at lesser accuracy and resolution
Both the 600Khz and the 300Khz unit can be used to profile bottom depth to the sensor’s maximum range at an accuracy of +/- 2%.
