Technology Type:
Deploying the FLOWBEC Frame (Source: Williamson et al. 2015)
Description and Purpose of Data: 

Two 2-week deployments at the Billia Croo (BC) wave site were carried out (typically 3–5 m wave height). The first in a tidally influenced area with up to 3.5 m/s spring tides. The second was at a non-tidally influenced area of the wave site with up to 1.5 m/s spring tides.

 

The FLOWBEC device was deployed at the tidally influenced site from 10 Jul – 24th Jul 2013 and at the non-tidally influenced site from 27 Jul – 12 Aug 2013.

 

A SonTek/YSI ADVOcean 5 MHz Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) provides near-bed flow and turbulence data to support the analysis of predator and prey behaviour, and inform collision risk.

Frequency of Collection: 
Continuous over each fourteen day deployment (3 deployments) which covered the full spring-neap cycle.
