A Navis autonomous profiling float with integrated optical Dissolved Oxygen sensor (SBE 63) and bolt-on WET Labs ECO Triplet is now available from Sea-Bird Scientific. The sensors take continuous measurements at 1 Hz through ascent, and provide high accuracy, resolution, and stability.
The SeapHOx combines the Satlantic SeaFET pH sensor with the Sea-Bird Electronics SBE 37-SMP-ODO MicroCAT CTD+DO sensor. The SeapHOx allows for the integrated data collection of pH with the critical oceanographic and biological measurement of temperature, salinity, and oxygen. The integrated package also allows the SeaFETTM to take advantage of the SBE 37's pumped flow path and anti-fouling technology, extending deployment durations in some cases.
The SBE 43 sets the oxygen measurement standard for oceanographic research. The sensor is a complete redesign of the Clark polarographic membrane type in which careful choices of materials, geometry, and sensor chemistry are combined with superior electronics interfacing and calibration methodology to yield major gains in performance.
The SBE 52-MP is a Conductivity, Temperature, Depth (pressure) sensor, designed for moored profiling applications in which measurements are made from from a device that travels vertically beneath a buoy, or from a buoyant package that is winched up and down from a bottom-mounted platform.
Due to increasing science demands, Sea-Bird developed an individually calibrated, high-accuracy, optical oxygen sensor to assist in critical hypoxia and ocean stoichiometric oxygen chemistry research. With this new sensor, a myriad of moored and float-based platforms can contribute significantly in these driving areas of importance.
