RBRlegato C.T.D & RTSYS NemoSens

RTSYS has integrated the RBRlegato3 C.T.D on the NemoSens© micro-AUV for low-power measurements of temperature, pressure, salinity, and sound velocity. The NemoSens is a 90cm long micro-AUV and an evolution of the RTSYS range of larger AUVs. It is lightweight, easy-to-use, modular, and intended for water quality, hydrographic, and acoustic surveys, building on RTSYS’s years of acoustics experience. NemoSens uses … Read More

RBR instruments study sea level rise in the Canadian Arctic

Since the writing of this story, published in ECO Magazine, the Milne Ice Shelf has collapsed into the Arctic Ocean. A team of Canadian and American researchers are using RBR temperature and salinity loggers to study how the Arctic’s ice shelves are changing over time. By understanding their disappearance, the researchers are able to predict the dynamics of the much … Read More

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

WHOI’s ChemYak equipped with RBRconcerto CTD captures outgassing pulse during ice break-up in Cambridge Bay, Canada

In spring 2018, researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) surveyed the Arctic nearshore of Cambridge Bay, Canada, by remote-controlled kayak equipped with an RBRconcerto CTD. The CTD and chemical data they collected captured the outgassing pulse associated with ice break-up and helped them identify the physical dynamics that created the pulse, allowing them to better constrain the annual greenhouse … Read More
