The acronym “CTD” might unofficially represent more than just conductivity, temperature, and depth. Since most CTDs include one or more auxiliary sensors, a given CTD package might technically be called a “CTDpHDOFLNTUTr” (CTD + pH + dissolved oxygen + fluorescence +...
The Argo Program in Numbers
In the last year of news, the dominant story has been a science topic: the coronavirus pandemic. And though most forms of Marine Science have little to do with the global response to COVID-19, its effects are felt in almost every aspect of our own scientific...
BGC Sensors that Power Argo
Did you know that the sensors that power BGC-Argo are also in heavy use on shipboard and moored platforms? Learn about the analogous BGC sensors for deployment on moorings and vessels, and how your field crew can keep stride with ocean robots.
History of the Argo CTD
Believe it or not, the first profiling floats couldn’t measure temperature and salinity. They solely traced ocean currents, totally ignorant of the sweet CTD data they were passing by. Adding a CTD changed the game. Learn more about the early beginnings of Argo, and how Sea-Bird’s first float CTD helped change the face of oceanography.
5 Inductive Modem Configurations
Inductive modem moorings are capable and flexible. Learn how 1 mooring line can facilitate real-time data for up to 100 instruments, in 5 unique configurations.
Inductive Modem Telemetry
IM systems eliminate the need for connectors entirely, transforming a mooring’s tether into a medium for real-time data transmission.
Q&A: Measurements Along the Tidal Cycle
Zooming in shows salinity and dissolved oxygen are fluctuating heavily alongside the tidal cycle. Can you determine what is causing this?
Q&A: Identifying Data Types
Can you correctly label the 4 plots? Hint: this area is subject to periods of eutrophication during the late summer/early fall.
