Vertical Profiler System Base
A Vertical Profiler System (also known as an off-shore profiling system) is a mobile instrument platform that consists of a seafloor base unit and an instrument package that floats on a tethered cable. A winch on the base unit raises and lowers the instrument package. Cable spooled from the base is long enough for the instrument package to extend to the surface, collecting data throughout the water column.
