GEOxyz provides high precision Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP’s) and Wave measurements for estuary, coastal and offshore applications. Acoustic Doppler devices use sound waves and the Doppler effect to measure velocity fluctuations underwater, and can do so several times per second. Currents can be measured not only close to the instrument itself, but also some distance away, as well as simultaneously at many points along the way.
Currents in rivers, estuaries or at sea are a dynamic and often unpredictable and sometimes dangerous phenomenon. GEOxyz can set out mooring posts to record and analyse the currents to determine how they would affect your project. Our models can be used to understand the environment and to design ports and their protective structures.
