Six new instruments for gathering data faster, more conveniently and more accurately are discussed. The POPUP profiler releases a series of probes to track vertical current profiles, while the Fast Profiler collects CTD data and returns to its support ship. A tiny digital recording voltmeter measures sediment temperature from within the walls of a hydraulic piston corer. Sea Duct performs "in situ" sediment transport experiments. A custom data acquisition system monitors fixed and drifting hydrophone arrays in the Arctic, and an Arctic Remote Autonomous Measurement Platform serves as a semi-permanent data station to collect and transmit or store information.
