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.
LOBO Land/Ocean Biogeochemical Observatory
The LOBO is the ultimate answer to the need for automated, robust, and accurate water-quality measurements, particularly in sensitive and diverse ecological areas such as estuaries and inland waters.
The HydroCAT-EP measures and records conductivity, temperature, depth, dissolved oxygen, pH, turbidity and chlorophyll. It is ideally suited for extended deployments in remote, biologically rich environments.
The HydroCAT measures and records conductivity, temperature, depth, and optical dissolved oxygen. It is ideally suited for extended deployments in remote, biologically rich environments.
The SUNA V2 UV nitrate sensor is the ultimate chemical-free solution for autonomous monitoring of nitrogen-based nutrient concentrations in ocean, estuarine, and high-turbidity freshwater environments.
Water Quality Monitor (WQM)
The WQM is designed to deliver core biogeochemical water-quality parameters - conductivity, temperature, depth, dissolved oxygen, fluorescence, turbidity - in coastal ecosystems from a single integrated package.
HydroCycle Phosphate Sensor
The HydroCycle-PO4 is a single-analyte wet chemistry sensor engineered for environmental monitoring.
ECO FL Fluorometers
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.
