  • A Nortek AquaDopp ® 400kHz current profiler deployed within a shallow bay in Malta. The deployment was conducted for the EU Horizon 2020 research project ‘Tools for Assessment and Planning of Aquaculture Sustainability’ (TAPAS) and its aim was to produce scientific research data to support the sustainable expansion of coastal aquaculture systems. The current profiler was deployed for 16 months to help model the hydrodynamic activity, and to complement the on-going integrated multitrophic aquaculture (IMTA) study. The collected data was input into nutrient dispersion modelling software to illustrate the movement of nutrients. The current profiler collected current speed and direction by 1-meter increments from the sensor. The profiler system was re-positioned periodically. All specific data set pertaining to each deployment is in the metadata file.
