Have you ever wanted to use your tilt current meter at the surface but inverted (hanging)?  The latest application note from Lowell Instruments describes how to do it. See http://www.lowellinstruments.com/products/tcm-1-current-meter

The new TCM-3 Tilt Current Meter is nearly ready for release.  Shown here with its more slender predecessor, the TCM-3 is rated to 4500 m depth and 0-80 cm/s. It will be officially released in January 2016.

Lowell Instruments now stocks EP2000 antifouling paint. We only stock one color (white) and one size (half-pint).  But this is a very good way to reduce biofouling on 10-12 TCM-1 tilt current meters in shallow coastal environments.

Kevan Gregalis at NOAA Fisheries - Beaufort Laboratory shared these photos. Kevan and his coworkers are using the MAT-1 and TCM-1 current meter to better understand the relationship between fish trap orientation, current direction and trap effectiveness.  The traps also have GoPro cameras so they can observe fish behavior.  These traps are being be deployed off the mid-Atlantic coast this month.

John Pohlman (USGS) and David Brankovits (Texas A & M) just sent in this video from a cave in the Yucatan.  They are using tilt current meter to record the environment in the caves.  In this cave the water column is highly stratified with a strong halocline. Occasional storms increase the flow in the cave and mix the water.  This deployment occurred during one major storm and the TCM recorded a significant spike in current.
