Current and wave measurements
Precise current and wave measurements are of great importance to any marine site. This information is crucial for both the correct use of equipment and operation of the site, which in turn benefits the indigenous fauna and the farmed fish.
Åkerblå has the relevant equipment which can be used to conduct measurements and is also available to rent. Åkerblå also perform analyses on the measured data, following the Norwegian Standards (NS 9425-1:1999, NS 9425-2:2003 and NS 9415:2009).
Ocean currents are measured using rotor-based units, doppler point meters and doppler profilers. Wave and current data is measured using AWAC instruments.
