The Winch Instrument Package includes 12 sensors mounted on the Float Package Winch Instrument Platform (see figure above). One of these packages will be on each of the two RSN moorings. The 12 instruments are required for measurement of physical oceanographic, chemical and biological processes throughout the ~ 200 m upper water column to the surface. Mounted on the platform, these sensors provide co-registered measurements at high temporal resolution, making optimum use of the power and bandwidth supplied by the RSN cabled network.
