Echologger Air50 Used to Study Land/Sea Sediment Exchange

The air-borne precision echosounder, Echologger Air50, has been launched and supplied to the world renowned institute KIOST (Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology).

Air50 uses air-borne ultrasound to measure accurate distance to the surface of water and land in swash zones with a high ping rate. The device can cover from 30 cm to 10 m in range with millimeter resolution. Multiple devices (up to 32) can be networked in series with a standardized MODBUS output protocol.

12 units of the device were initially installed by KIOST to study sediment move and tide speed in a swash zone, and significant information on sediment move was taken from the devices. KIOST now plan to deploy more devices to cover a wider area. The unique device was to developed to help researchers to find out key parameters of sediment exchange between land and sea using air-borne ultrasound. For more information, click here.
