Abstract : This grant covered the cost of acquiring a complete towed ADCP/CTD system, assembling it and doing preliminary tests. The system has subsequently been used very successfully as part of the ONR-funded program 'A Towed Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler System,' to collect upper ocean profiles of current in the data scarce eastern Indonesian Archipelago. A cruise report is appended. The system was designed particularly for use on foreign research vessels not equipped with hull mounted ADCPs nor underway CTD profiling capability.
