This salinity profile was from an arctic deployment in rough seas. At a certain point, we see regular salinity spikes of about ± .01 psu in the upcast data. Can you determine what caused this?
You never know what’s floating on the surface. That’s why Sea-Bird created the STS – to prevent the main Argo CTD from ingesting surface contaminants, but still obtain surface data. Learn how it helps extend deployments.
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.
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.
Conceptually, inductive moorings seem complex – communicating with 100 instruments through a single cable doesn’t exactly sound intuitive. But, in practice, the setup is surprisingly simple. Watch our latest video to see how easy it is to test and simulate an inductive modem mooring.
Deploying a moored CTD can be a game of trust. Nobody wants to return to their long-estranged CTD to find poor data quality. Of course, nobody wants to visit the middle of the ocean everyday either. Fortunately, we’ve created a basic troubleshooting guide for moored...
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.
IM systems eliminate the need for connectors entirely, transforming a mooring’s tether into a medium for real-time data transmission.
Zooming in shows salinity and dissolved oxygen are fluctuating heavily alongside the tidal cycle. Can you determine what is causing this?
Can you correctly label the 4 plots? Hint: this area is subject to periods of eutrophication during the late summer/early fall.
