The Aqualog system is designed for multidisciplinary oceanological studies and environmental monitoring on the sea shelves and continental slopes. An autonomous carrier (marine elevator) for different oceanic measuring equipment was developed for the first time in the practice of Russian oceanography. It is a carrier, for example, for an acoustic Doppler current meter, a CTD-profiler, a sensor of dissolved oxygen, a fluorometer, a turbidity meter, etc.

The Aqualog system has an energy resource sufficient for profiling the water column in the programming regim for up to several months.The total length of the vertical displacement of the system at a nominal capacity of the power supply reaches 200 km. The main results of the field tests of the Aqualog and preliminary scientific results of its application are presented on the basis of the results of the Black Sea expeditions (2006-2008).
