Raw data from Triaxus topAWI (towed ocean profiler of the AWI) during RV POLARSTERN cruise PS133/1


The MacArtney Triaxus extended version is a remotely operated towed vehicle (ROTV). It is towed behind the ship between 2 and 10 knots and can undulate in a saw tooth pattern between a few meters below the surface and 350m depth. The umbilical provides power and a fiber optic link to sensors that are mounted on the Triaxus (see SensorWeb). The data collected by the sensors were recorded on separate computers, one computer per sensor (including the flight information from the Triaxus itself). Thus, there are 7 separate data streams saved in separate folders plus a folder with metadata information about the different dives. During long Triaxus operations, new data files would be started approximately every 4 hours, because some of the employed software programs do not allow for backing up of the files while they are still being written to. In addition to a test dive, one long transect across the ACC at 25°W was collected on PS133.1 in October 2022.
