Instrument: Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter

External Identifier:
» skos:broadMatch

ADV is the acronym for acoustic doppler velocimeter. The ADV is a remote-sensing, three-dimensional velocity sensor. Its operation is based on the Doppler shift effect. The sensor can be deployed either as a moored instrument or attached to a still structure near the seabed.
