The Nature Trust of British Columbia and Coastal First Nations deploy RBR loggers to enhance sustainability of wild BC fish stocks

In fall of 2019, The Nature Trust of British Columbia (The Nature Trust of BC), Canada, launched a five-year monitoring program using RBRsolo³ Tu turbidity loggers and RBRmaestro³ multi-channel water quality loggers to determine the resilience of 15 estuaries to sea-level rise and climate change. The Enhancing Estuary Resilience Project is a partnership between The Nature Trust of BC, the … Read More

RBRquartz³ Q bottom pressure recorders resolve small-scale changes in water level across a coral reef to determine roughness over complex terrain

In March 2017, a team from Stanford University deployed five RBRquartz³ Q bottom pressure recorders on the coral reef off the coast of Ofu, a South Pacific island of American Samoa, to resolve centimeter-scale changes in water surface height over the reef. The measurements they collected support the development of a comprehensive understanding of drag over complex terrain. Quantifying drag … Read More

New RBRquartz³ BPR|zero with AzeroA capabilities enables climate, ocean circulation, and geophysical studies

Deepwater pressure measurements with the highest level of stability are critical for climate, global ocean circulation, and geophysical process studies. The RBRquartz³ BPR|zero is a special version of the RBRquartz³ BPR (bottom pressure recorder) implementing an internal barometer and switching valve. The novel AzeroA technique is used to provide in-situ reference measurements to correct for long term drift in the … Read More
