  • AHERC Researchers Attend Water Current Data Processing Workshop

Alaska Hydrokinetic Energy Research Center director Jeremy Kasper and research engineer Paul Duvoy will attend a workshop next week in Fairbanks focused on using software packages that process data from acoustic Doppler current profilers. ADCPs measure water current velocity and depth profiles.

Jules Hummon, a physical oceanographer from the Department of Oceanography at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, will be in Fairbanks to host the workshop Feb. 20-22.

Kasper and Duvoy will learn how to use software packages for collecting and post-processing shipboard ADCP data. The workshop was arranged by Seth Danielson of the UAF College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.
