SAMBAT: Multiparameter probe

Description - SAMBAT is an autonomous multiparameter probe used to monitor and control water quality, fresh water and sea environment.

This multiparameter probe is used to measure and record the main physical water parameters among them temperature, depth, conductivity, salinity, turbidity, fluorescence, dissovled oxygen and pH.

The probe is equipped with brush and teletransmission as it uses the brush to protect sensors from biogfouling. The measured data can be transferred by e-mail thanks to the integrated GSM modem.

PCO2 CARIOCA Buoy

Description - CARIOCA is an automatic drifting buoy designed to measure the concentration of pCO2 at the surface of the ocean in order to qualify the CO2 exchange between atmosphere and ocean.

Moreover, to enable correlation the buoy is fitted with sea surface temperature (SST), practical salinity, fluorescence and dissolved oxygen measurements.

It also includes ARGOS transmission equipment and power supply to achieve one year of operating autonomy with measurements every hour.

The body of the CARIOCA buoy consists of a tube (0.20m in diameter and 2.5m in length). A wider yellow floating body surrounds the upper part of the tube. The total weight of the buoy is about 130 kg.
