This approach allows the user to optimize ocean measurements over a large depth range. A single set of sensors is used, instead of several sets of sensors at fixed depths, which greatly reduces both the cost of a survey and the time spent on instrument maintenance and calibration. Such a system can collect regular profiles over a large depth range (e.g. 500 m) at high temporal and vertical resolutions at fixed geographical location over continental slopes or in the open ocean during a season or longer.
