What is the STS Sensor?

What is the STS Sensor?

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.

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.
