Mooring the PT

The first action of the 2D fieldwork was mooring a PT (Pressure Transducer) offshore the study site at about -14 m, below the closing depth of the beach profile (around -12 m in this area).

The mooring structure is a car tire filled with concrete and metal  bars,  with a stainless steel structure on top to attach the PT.
The PT was deployed by two divers (Zapa and Inês), on September 13, at a depth during diving of 16 m.

Daniel is passing the PT to Zapa. Inês is behind the boat in this photo.
The skipper was Daniel and the RUSH team was Ana and André, who did the location of the equipment with the GPS.
