The ocean is changing, spectrophotometers are slow, and tracking ocean acidification becomes more critical by the day. Generating the necessary time-series to measure changes in ocean pH requires a new set of tools. To measure the impact of ocean acidification, the Sea-Bird Scientific suite of ISFET pH sensors represent the next generation of ocean pH research.
These pH sensors are capable of long-term deployments on moorings and fixed platforms, providing the pH accuracy and resolution required for ocean acidification research. The solid-state ISFET sensor’s low drift provides dependable stability for long-term studies, with potential for over 1 million samples and up to a year between service and calibration.
Sea-Bird Scientific ISFET pH sensors are used extensively for:
- Ocean Acidification Research
- Coral Reef Research
- Coastal Marine Biology
- Environmental Monitoring
- Coastal and Open Ocean Moorings
The SeapHOx™ V2 combines the SeaFET™ V2 pH sensor with the SBE 37-SMP-ODO MicroCAT CTD+DO sensor. The SeapHOx™ V2 allows for the integrated data collection of pH with the critical oceanographic and biological measurement of temperature, salinity, and oxygen.
- High-accuracy ISFET pH sensor
- Long-term deployment stability
- Internal memory and batteries support 1-year autonomous deployments
- Integrated pump and flow path shared with the CTD
- Replaceable anti-foulant cartridges prevent biofouling in all environments
- Industry leading CTD and dissolved oxygen data—the field-proven SBE 37 CTD family has more than 10,000 instruments deployed world-wide
- Shallow and 2000m versions available
