MCIP Fabrication


Our fabrication guru, Kent Smith, welds components for the mobile cart instrument platforms (MCIP). Assembly is now complete, and the steel frames are at San Diego Galvanizing to be galvanized–this treatment prevents corrosion and will extend the lives of these units. Each cart will be outfitted with instruments to measure temperature, pressure, dye concentration, and water velocity. Our volunteers will be deploying them in the surf-zone and monitoring them for 48 hours during each of the dye releases.
