2020-2021 USAP Field Season
University of Hawaii Data Acquisition System (UHDAS) support
Dr. Julia M Hummon
Supporting Stations: ARSV Laurence M. Gould, RV/IB Nathaniel B. Palmer
This project consists of the maintenance of Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) computer systems on the ARSV Laurence M. Gould (LMG) and RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer (NBP). Port calls are required every one to two years to service these systems. Typically, this consists of upgrading or re-installing the UHDAS software on the shipboard data processing computers. Occasionally this will require hardware upgrades that require pre-approval by NSF to ensure the costs are covered by the grant. These computers are used to manage and post-process data. On the LMG, the ADCP data is specifically collected and managed under the Chereskin (O-317-L) project. On the NBP, the systems are maintained for general grantee requests.
Field Season Overview
No sailing or port call visits are planned for systems on the LMG or NBP this season.
