Ice Tethered Profiler
The Ice Tethered Profiler (ITP) is an autonomous time-series instrument that vertically profiles the water column under the ice. The ITP collects in situ measurements of conductivity, temperature, and depth. Data can be automatically transmitted in near real time via inductive modem when connected to a surface controller.
Profiling depth, time intervals and pressure stops are user-defined, and profiling patterns can span specific seasons or timeframes.
