The first component of EMSO-PT Cadiz station was successfully tested off the coast of Olhão, Algarve. The tests were performed on one of IPMA’s vessels, the RV Diplodus.
This test allowed to confirm the water profiler capacities for the collection of data at down to 150 meters of the water column and is now ready to be permanently installed in Sagres.
The EMSO-PT/CCMAR infrastructure is expected to be in continuous and autonomous operation until the end of September 2021, when the data will be collected.
The researchers verified that the profiler appeared to behave as expected, and four regular profiles of approximately fifteen minutes each could be observed. It was also necessary to repair the radar reflector installed on the surface buoy.
