Measuring Our Blue Planet for 50 Years
We create instruments to measure the blue planet. From the ocean abyss to the polar ice cap, our sensors track water parameters - temperature, depth, salinity, dissolved gases, pH, and many others.
RBRglissando profiling winch
The new RBRglissando underway profiling winch enables automated free-fall profiling with instrument payloads up to 20kg. A configurable line speed up to 10m/s allows for operation while steaming normally without slowing down.
RBR 50th Anniversary Roadshows
We've hit the road to celebrate our 50th anniversary of providing oceanographic sensors, instruments, and measurement systems to researchers around the world. On October 6, 2023 we're visiting WHOI. Click to learn more and join the celebration.
Measuring ocean salinity
Salinity measurements are a fundamental part of oceanographic research, with broad implications ranging from algal blooms to the global climate. Dive into our new ocean salinity page to learn about this vital derived parameter, featuring conductivity sensors and CTDs, related technical articles, and more.
