Nortek, together with the University of Oslo, has an opening for a PhD candidate in the area of fluid mechanics with an emphasis on remote sensing of waves. The Research Council of Norway is funding this three year project titled "Coherent radar for environmental monitoring of ice, waves, and currents for oil and gas operations in the Arctic".
What’s the distance to the seabed? How deep is my scour hole? What shape does it have? At what rate does sedimentation build up in my dam/reservoir? The answers to these questions are provided by the Nortek Scour Monitor; an instrument that measures the distance to the seabed along four downward looking narrow acoustic beams that fan out in a single axial plane.
The new AOS (Autonomous Online System) from Nortek offers online access to current and wave data from any location. Battery powered satellite communication ensures uncomplicated real time data transfer from Nortek sensors, whether deployed in the Arctic, on a remote island, or in a shipping channel.
Nortek wishes everyone a Happy World Oceans Day from your Nortek friends around the world!
