Lagoon hydrodynamics of pearl farming atolls in French Polynesia : the case of Takaroa Atoll (Tuamotu Archipelago)

Takaroa Atoll has been instrumented for a short period of 3 months (from July 2022 to October 2022) in order to get additionnal data into Takaroa passage (Teauoae Pass). One ADCP has been deployed to measure current direction and speed over the water column to evaluate the water exchanges between the lagoon and the ocean of this semi-open pearl farming atoll.

Sampling strategy available on Sextant - Marine Geographic Information System.
