Field Activity 2017-361-FA

Identifier 2017-361-FA
Purpose Collect offshore waves, currents and water depth data.
Location Madeira Beach, FL
Summary Retrieved ADCP, which collected waves, currents, and water depth data. Re-deployed ADCP to continue collecting offshore waves, currents, and water depth data.
Info derived Mean wave parameters (height, period, direction), mean currents (magnitude and direction), and mean water depth.
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
