History of the Argo CTD

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.

Video: Simulating an Inductive Mooring

Video: Simulating an Inductive Mooring

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.

Moored CTD Troubleshooting Guide

Moored CTD Troubleshooting Guide

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...

Explaining the ISFET pH Sensor

Explaining the ISFET pH Sensor

May 2019 Newsletter ISFET-based pH sensors have been used to measure pH in industrial settings for years (do you know the pH of your last beer?). It’s the adaptation of this technology for measuring ocean pH that makes the SeaFET V2 and SeapHOx V2 novel tools for the...
