Metering

Types of meters include current meters, temperature meters, depth meters, heat flow gauges, geoprobe, drifters, transmissometers, penetrometers, moorings, wave pressure sensors, nephelometers, etc.

Metering information

metadata: information about meter-related analog paper rolls, inventory of gear, deployment of gear, operation of gear, recovery of gear, tapes, observations, and sample attempts.
