Suspended Sediment Measurement System (SSMS)

This video shows the SSMS being lowered to the sea floor. After it lands, the actuator lowers the inner frame, which inserts shear and compression wave sensors into the sea floor. After shear and compression wave data has been taken, the actuator raises the inndr frame, the shear and compression wave sensors are retracted from the sea floor, and the SSMS is retrieved.
