The University of Miami has developed an automatic, unattended profiler system called the Cyclesonde. This system measures, records and reports data via radio. Sample data records from shallow water and the surface layers of the deep sea are also described. With record lengths of as much as one month, this technique becomes a viable alternative to costly ship anchor stations and dense vertical arrays of moored fixed-level instruments.
