Scripps Technical Forum | AC-S: The Telescope Into the Rainbow of Ocean Life

Scripps Technical Forum

Time: Thursday, April 06, 2023 | 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Location: Hydraulics Lab Mezzanine

Sea-Bird Scientific is grateful for the opportunity to present at a Technical Forum to the Scripps Institute of Oceanography community.  In this session, our optical experts, Cris Orrico, Program Manager, and Dave Stahlke, Technical Support, will guide you through our optical portfolio, and help you better understand the science of optical oceanography.  We’ll specifically look at our new LED AC-S, and how it can be used to understand the diversity of ocean life through harmful algal bloom analysis, carbon cycling, and ocean color studies.

Lunch will be provided. Please register to secure your spot.

The AC-S provides in-situ optical data of beam transmission and absorption over a minimum of 75 wavelengths in real-time. From climate modeling and ocean color validation, to carbon cycling, this broad spectrum attenuation sensor, with its new LED installation, will enable you to gather more data without it leaving the water, allowing you to make the most informed decisions. AC-S is the top tier optical instrument SBS produces, and one that has no equal in the market.

Learn more about the AC-S
Key benefits:
  • Performance
    • The new LED lamp provides the sensor with a known 10,000 hour lifetime.
    • Increased resolution (reduction of noise) of the A and C measurements in the “blue” wavelengths.
  • Service
    • The turnaround time will be more consistent and faster by using a more reliable technology. This keeps the sensor in the water longer, and means you can garner more data!
  • Design
    • Individual WLED assembly characterization that includes a 48 hour burn in, temperature test (-10 – 50 deg), and a shock test.

We are grateful to the Scripps team for having us, and look forward to connecting with the Scripps community next month.
