Download the Free Technical Note: Algae Measurements Using In Vivo Fluorescence! Phytoplankton are microscopic, free-floating photosynthetic plants and bacteria that are commonly found in surface waters throughout the world. Aquatic scientists and water resource managers measure phytoplankton to gain a more in depth understanding on ecological dynamics, ecological health, nutrient status, and harmful algal bloom potential in aquatic systems. Submersible fluorescence sensors help to make this measurement easy, efficient, and economical by enabling real-time field estimates of phytoplankton biomass that can be directly correlated to quantitative laboratory measurements using standard methods.

Water Level Measurement Practical and Reliable with the OTT RLS. The OTT RLS is a non-contact radar level sensor with pulse radar technology. The OTT RLS offers a large measurement range with a small blanking distance and narrow beam width and it easily connects to most dataloggers. The RLS has extremely low power consumption and is ideal for remote or solar powered sites.
OTT RLS & CBS Water Level Sensors Making a Difference in Harris County. Download the Case Study! The Harris County Flood Control District in Texas was created in 1937 in response to the devastating floods that struck Downtown Houston and Harris County between 1929 and 1935. Currently, the District's boundaries include 3.7 million people in 34 jurisdictions one of which is the City of Houston. In just one year Harris County endured two massive rainfall events with totals of 8-16 inches in 3 to 12 hours. A total of 9800 homes were flooded and 9 persons died. The District is using its "Flood Warning System" (FWS) to measure rainfall and water level amounts in real-time, to provide up-to-date flood information.
