An S4 current meter is deployed on a short mooring to measure local tidal current directions and velocities. It gathers data on current speeds and directions, temperature, salinity, depth, wave heights and periods, and water clarity. The S4 current meter is attached to a computer that displays the readings in a graphical form.
