Sea-Bird 101: Conductivity Cells

Sea-Bird 101: Conductivity Cells

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.

Q&A: Regular Spikes in Salinity

Q&A: Regular Spikes in Salinity

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?

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...

Video: Troubleshooting Analog Sensors

Video: Troubleshooting Analog Sensors

Integrating analog sensors is relatively painless, at least compared to the more finicky RS-232 sensors. But what happens when you've diligently followed the instructions yet fail to receiving data from your sensor? Watch our troubleshooting video to learn our methods...

Flushing and Storing pH Sensors on the HydroCAT-EP V2

The HydroCAT-EP V2's new pH sensor design makes it safer and easier than ever to swap sensors in the field. A new flushing port ensures that corrosive seawater stays far away from the electronics, while a new mechanical design creates a snug fit to withstand the...

HydroCAT-EP V2 Overview

Introducing the HydroCAT-EP V2, Sea-Bird Scientific’s latest multiparameter instrument. We took the field-proven MicroCAT (SBE 37) and added a host of integrated sensors to the base CTD to provide users with a robust sampling platform in a compact, self-contained...

Calibrating Dissolved Oxygen Sensors

Our dissolved oxygen sensors, the SBE 43 and SBE 63, are calibrated with tools and methods we learned from calibrating our world-class temperature and conductivity sensors. Get a look behind the scenes in our calibration lab.    Related...
