Microstructure turbulence profiler
Manufacturer: Rockland Scientific International
Features: The VMP-500 we possess is a vertical microstructure profiler for the measurement of dissipation scale turbulence up to 750 m depth. This model is available with real-time data transmission. The user should prepare Matlab with Signal Processing Toolbox for the measurement and the analysis.
Manufacturer: Satrantic (Sea-Bird Scientific)
Model: Deep SUNA V2
Features: The Deep SUNA measures nitrate concentrations using UV absorption technology. The depth rating is 2000 m. This sensor has an analog output (5V) and can be mounted to the VMP-500 or other platforms. Stand-alone operation is also available with our external battery canister.
Manufacturer: Teledyne Oceanscience
Features: The UCTD is a “tow-yo” instrument to profile the water column from the sea surface to >400 m depth. It can be operated at ship speeds up to 10 knots. We can provide not only a Sea-Bird CTD sensor, but also a custom-made CTD with RINKO-DO and fluorescence/turbidity sensors.
Manufacturer: Sea-Bird Scientific
Model: SBE 37-SMP
Features: The SBE 37-SMP is a high-accurate CTD sensor with internal batteries and memory. The depth rating is 2000 m.
Portable dissolved oxygen sensor
Manufacturer: JFE Advantech
Features: The ARO-PR is a high-accurate optical DO sensor. The initial accuracy is ±1% of measured value or ±1.5 μmol L-1, which enables us to easily measure DO as an alternative to Winkler method.
