Recommended practices for Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) deployment published

IOGP’s Metocean Committee has published IOGP Report 607 Recommended practices for Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) deployment. ADCPs are used to measure and monitor how fast water is moving across an entire water column, an important environmental parameter affecting offshore structure design and operations.

The guide provides principles of operation, general guidance with respect to instrument characteristics and setup, deployment types, decision trees to support ADCP planning, guidance for data measurement and collection, and several example deployment setups.

The Metocean Committee also published the proceedings and executive summary of its Tropical Cyclones Webinar, part of a long-term initiative to promote both understanding of climate change on tropical cyclones and engagement in developing solutions for mitigating risks to society and to the oil and gas industry.
