Buoys / Fixed Sites
Sea-Bird manufactures a large number of instruments intended for moorings, buoys, and other fixed sites. A moored instrument measures water parameters in one location, over an extended period of time, providing a time series of data. To reduce costs, a moored CTD may not include a pressure sensor, because the deployment depth is known (approximately); the pressure sensor is optional in Sea-Bird moored CTDs. Sea-Bird also manufactures moored temperature sensors as well as instruments for high-accuracy pressure measurements (wave and tide recorder, bottom pressure recorder, and tsunami sensor).
Sea-Bird moored offerings include instruments compatible with our Inductive Modem (IM) telemetry system. See Inductive Modem Instruments for a list of these instruments and products, and detailed information.
