Water Quality – Data on the condition of the water including, chemical, physical and biological elements. Elements commonly measured include dissolved oxygen, bacteria, salt levels and turbidity (see below).
Turbidity – Data on the amount of particles within a water sample which impact how light is absorbed and scattered. The particles can be biological, chemical or physical.
Read our full article on Turbidity (includes a recent project example).
Currents – Data which measures the movement of water from one location to another.
Acoustic Profiler – Often called Acoustic Doppler Profilers or ADCP, produces data on how fast water is moving across a water column using sound waves which ricochet off particles suspended in the moving water and reflect back to the instrument.
Common users: Marine / coastal operators such as ports, harbours, offshore renewables, jetty or berthing operators, dredgers, marine pilots etc.
Each project is different. We combine our knowledge of working with different sensors and sensor manufacturers, and our experience of numerous marine monitoring projects globally, to design and build the most appropriate solution for your situation and environment.
OceanWise listened and provided a unique approach to our needs. Their system was easy to install but overall it was OceanWise’s flexibility and knowledge that most impressed – they gave us a fully supported system very quickly.
