Partnering with Triton Submarines for Deep Sea Exploration

We were excited to be featured in ECO magazine’s latest digital edition of their Deep-Sea Exploration series.

In the spring of 2018, Triton Submarines reached out to the team at Sea-Bird Scientific to discuss collaboration on an upcoming project involving a manned submersible. Through this partnership, Sea-Bird Scientific alongside Triton and other leaders in oceanographic science enabled a manned submersible to reach the five deepest points of our oceans; which ultimately led to the breaking of numerous world records in what was called the Five Deeps Expedition. We’re grateful for the team at Triton Submarines for the opportunity to be part of this program.

FAQ of the Month: Why and how should I align data from a 911plus CTD?

The T-C Duct on a 911plus imposes a fixed delay (lag time) between the temperature measurement and the conductivity measurement reported in a given data scan. The delay is due to the time it takes for water to transit from the thermistor to the conductivity cell, and is determined by flow rate (pump rate). The average flow rate for a 9plus is about 30 ml/sec. The Deck Unit (11plus) automatically advances conductivity (moves it forward in time relative to temperature) on the fly by a user-programmable amount (default value of 0.073 seconds), before the data is logged on your computer.
