Coastal and Estuarine
As populations living near coastal regions continue to grow, understanding and monitoring the effects of human activities on the surrounding estuarine and coastal ecosystems is imperative to protect these natural resources. There is a definitive need for long-term, accurate, cost-effective water-quality monitoring systems that provide real-time information on the status of these essential ecosystems.
Sea-Bird is pioneering the effort to monitor nutrients that cause eutrophication (otherwise known as ‘dead zones’) in our coastal and inland waters.
ECO FL fluorometers measure fluorescence from chlorophyll, CDOM, uranine, rhodamine, phycocyanin, and phycoerythrin.
The ECO-PAR provides highly accurate measurements of PAR (400-700 nm) in all aquatic environments.
