VMP-500 Turbulence Profiler

The VMP-500 is a vertical microstructure turbulence profiler for the measurement of dissipation-scale turbulence in oceans and lakes up to 2000 m depth.

It is equipped with state-of-art microstructure velocity probes (shear probes), high-resolution temperature sensors (thermistors), and high-accuracy CTD sensors.

The VMP-500 is available with either real-time data transmission or internal recording options.
