Update to the Sound Velocity program.
Posted by Jerry Knisley on 19 July 2016 01:27 PM

     There was a discrepancy discovered in the Sound Velocity program for importing the CTD files from the CASTAWAY. This error was in the implementation of the velocity calculation. In some circumstances the error was a small amount but in others the error caused large errors in velocity. In the case that the error was large, the velocity error would cause obvious issues with the depth of the survey.

     Testing was completed to make sure that the  issue has been resolved. The program was updated to allow the user the ability to choose between the UNESCO formula and the Mackenzie formula. The result of the testing is displayed below.

    To download the update please visit our website at http://support.hypack.com/Support and navigate to the HYPACK 2016 download area. The program is listed under the Specific Programs area and is listed as the Sound Velocity program. All programs that import CTD files directly will have the update applied.
