AGRG Coastal Team Concludes Active Summer of Fieldwork and Gears up for the next Topo-Bathy lidar Mission

Below is a photo of the entire coastal team taken after a day of deploying underwater light sensors, a Hydrolab water quality probe with a turbidity sensor. This fieldwork was conducted to acquire a time series of light levels at various water level and water quality conditions as this directly effects how deep the green laser on the topo-bathymetric lidar sensor will penetrate. Other data collected near the light sensor deployment sites includes an AGRG weather station and tide gauge. We also deployed our RiverRay current metre to a fixed mooring to evaluate how the down-looking ACDP would work to measure the water level and currents along the coast.
