Water Quality Head
Extended environmental monitoring by measuring distribution of chemical/organic matters
Physical and bio-optical isosurfaces within a volume through a frontal zone on the northern Monterey Bay shelf
Temperature and chlorophyll fluorescence at 11 m deep for the volume survey shown above
The four sensors and sensor groups the Water Quality Head consists of
Two of the integrated sensors:
CTD (on the top)
enviroFlu-HC (at the bottom)
In order to enforce standards for the protection of coastal sea areas and water resources, the Water Quality Head contributes significantly to the monitoring of health status and water quality.
Another, highly useful application of SeaCat’s Water Quality Head is the determination of current sonar conditions and water layers. This information may be crucial for the optimised deployment of e.g. mobile diver detection sonar systems.
The Water Quality Head’s sensor suite has been configured by ATLAS ELEKTRONIK GmbH’s experts and mainly consists of the four sensors or sensor groups, respectively, as listed below:
4. Dissolved oxygen
|Sea and Sun
|enviroFlu-HC||Hydrocarbons in water||TriOS|
|microFlu-CDOM||CDOM (Coloured Dissolved Organic
|Ramses||Photosynthetically active radiation (PAR),
