About the Photo

So what is happening in the photo?  We asked Sidney Bilski of Metocean Services International, owner of the photo.

“This photo depicts a deepwater (3,150 meter) mooring being prepared for deployment.  The mooring was for collecting a full water column current profile and water quality.  It was outfitted with a combination of single point current meters, ADCPs, CT loggers and water level recorders. This was deployed for Total offshore Namibia for a period of 1 year.”
