Basic Maintenance videos for the SeaFET V2

Basic Maintenance videos for the SeaFET V2

Upgrading to a SeaFET V2 from the original SeaFET is completely internal—aside from the most inaccessible hardware within the instrument, the V2 uses the same housing, sensors, and batteries as the V1. Therefore, the basic maintenance procedures for the V1 and V2 are...

Q&A: Sudden Increase in Salinity

Q&A: Sudden Increase in Salinity

November 2018 Newsletter The figure above originated from an SBE 37-SMP MicroCAT moored CTD deployed in shallow seawater. On day 38, the salinity data appears to jump from a near-zero value, steadily increasing until around day 43, where it stayed around 30psu. Nearby...

Salinity Spikes: Sensor or Environment?

Salinity Spikes: Sensor or Environment?

These data show a subtle problem that is producing “fuzzy” salinity and oxygen data. While the overall shape of the profile appears reasonable, small spikes are present throughout the CTD cast. The black lines encompass a particularly strange spot where both salinity...
