Case Study: Long-Term Water Quality Monitoring with the Sea-Bird HydroCAT-EP

Case Study: Long-Term Water Quality Monitoring with the Sea-Bird HydroCAT-EP

Case Study, Water Quality
Download the Sea-Bird HydroCAT-EP Case Study Now! The Sea-Bird Scientific HydroCAT-EP is ideally suited for extended deployments in remote, biologically rich environments. Factory calibrated, field proven sensors ensure long term data stability. Depending on the application, the HydroCAT-EP can collect high quality data for several months up to a year. As part of HydroCAT-EP field tests, an extended deployment was carried out at Shilshole Bay, Puget Sound, Washington. In conjunction with the field tests, an SBE 37 MicroCAT with Dissolved Oxygen was deployed and a water sampling program was conducted. Intercomparisons between the data sets show the HydroCAT-EP is an accurate and stable instrument. These results also highlight the lack of maintenance required to sustain high quality data return. The HydroCAT-EP was deployed for 3.5 months from July 1, 2015…

Multiparameter Water Quality Instrument Selection Guide

Water Quality
Download your free Multiparameter Water Quality Instrument Selection Guide! Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. OTT, HYDROLAB®, and Sea-Bird offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications. Sea-Bird Scientific water quality multiparameter sondes are developed to provide accurate data in environments with salt water and biologically rich environments.Developed for longterm deployments.

Tech Note: Algae Measurements Using In Vivo Fluorescence

Sensors, Surface Water, Tech Note, Water Quality
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.

Download the Quality Assurance and Quality Control Technical Note Now! The primary activities taken to assure and control data quality are aptly called quality assurance and quality control. Determining the “true value” of a water quality measurement is an important fundamental of any QA/QC program. To determine the true value, many professionals apply a second means of measuring the parameter of interest, such as another instrument that is kept serviced and calibrated just for quality control purposes or a grab sample that is evaluated using a trusted laboratory technique. Instruments such as HYDROLAB's produce high quality data for many applications and by leveraging the HYDROLAB Operating System you can maximize uptime with streamlined calibration tasks.
