Mobile ADCP survey in most treacherous waters of Indonesia (and the world?)

mobile adcp survey in most treacherous waters of indonesia and the world

After a last minute change of the scope of work, we had to use a Workhorse Sentinel mounted on a vessel (a Monitor or a Mariner would have been much better) to survey some of the fastest currents of Indonesia (close to 6m/s).

We added a plate to break down the Vortex Induced Vibrations (VIV) associated with the long cylindrical shape of the Sentinel body. Quick and dirty, but worked perfectly even at 12 knots.
