Calculating tilt

Posted by Hannah Glover at January 02. 2019
We recently recovered a couple of Aquadopps that had been deployed in small tidal channels and discovered that they were not level during deployment. The pitch and roll were both non-zero and both changed during deployments. From what I've read in the manual and on this forum, the data may be suspect when tilt is greater than 30deg. I haven't been able to find the definition of tilt. How is tilt calculated from the pitch and roll? Thanks!
