RBRvirtuoso³ turbidity loggers deployed in coastal France as part of benthic ecosystem monitoring network

Off-shore of Brittany, in the western-most part of contiguous France, seven autonomous sea-bed platforms have been deployed to monitor turbidity. The measurements are being collected as part of France’s Réseau d’Observation Haute-Fréquence pour l’Environnement Côtier (ROEC), a local network (Brittany) for high-frequency coastal ocean observing, of which ROEC-Benth is the branch responsible for observing turbidity at the seabed. Bottom-mounted tripod … Read More

Observing ocean health: RBR, Dalhousie and DFO collaborate to develop new biogeochemical sensors

The ocean’s contribution to climate change may not be as visible as that of the atmosphere, but in lock-step with the atmosphere, the ocean is changing. The physical dynamics of its currents and temperature are changing, as well as its chemical and biological aspects; its biogeochemistry. Knowing the ocean’s biogeochemistry, including ecosystem health and the ocean’s ability to absorb carbon, … Read More

New RBRquartz Q|plus Enables High-Accuracy and Long Duration Tide & Wave Measurements

OTTAWA, CANADA, April 6, 2021 — RBR Ltd. is pleased to announce the commercial release of the new RBRquartz3 Q|plus pressure logger to meet the demands for high-accuracy, long-term measurements of sea level, tidal, and wave dynamics by coastal oceanographers worldwide.

RBRvirtuoso³ D|tide16 tide gauges support iXblue’s 3D seafloor mapping and New Zealand’s national tide modeling

In 2019, iXblue’s New Zealand office first deployed RBRvirtuoso³ D|tide16 loggers to measure the tides, in support of their high-resolution 3D sonar-generated maps of the seafloor. High–accuracy, long-term and low-drift tide measurements are required in iXblue’s work, to remove tides from survey data, to link geodetic land and ocean data and to model the tides in coastal regions. iXblue specializes … Read More

RBRsolo³ D | Depth Loggers deployed in research on wave transmission through mangrove forests

In July of 2019, Tori Tomiczek and Anna Wargula, assistant professors at the United States Naval Academy’s Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering in Annapolis, Maryland, USA, mounted RBRsolo³ D depth loggers to the roots of mangroves in Key West, Florida, to determine the transmission of boat wakes through the saltwater-inundated trees. Their work will help to better quantify … Read More

Canada’s Ocean Supercluster awards collaboration between RBR, DFO, and Dalhousie.

OTTAWA, O.N., Feb. 17, 2021 — RBR Ltd., an Ottawa based ocean technology company focused on the development of world-class oceanographic instrumentation, is pleased to announce significant funding from Canada’s Ocean Supercluster’s Accelerated Ocean Solutions Program (AOSP) for a new project that will develop integrated ocean sensors for autonomous ocean platforms in collaboration with Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans … Read More
