Short summary
A profiling mooring with an interdisciplinary suite of sensors for water depths up to 300 m is described in this note. It can be programmed to take profiles through the water column at set times or intervals and with the standard set of batteries is able to profile about 34 km in total (e.g. 200 profiles of 170 m profiling each). The mooring was designed to observe the dynamics of the redoxcline in the Gotland Basin over periods of up to 3 months.
