Installed meteocenographic sensors

    Solar Radiation Sensor

    • Manufacturer: Apogee Instruments
    • Model: SQ-215
    • Info: Photosynthetically active radiation, often abbreviated PAR, designates the spectral range (wave band) of solar radiation from 400 to 700 nanometers that photosynthetic organisms are able to use in the process of photosynthesis. This spectral region corresponds more or less with the range of light visible to the human eye. Photons at shorter wavelengths tend to be so energetic that they can be damaging to cells and tissues, but are mostly filtered out by the ozone layer in the stratosphere. Photons at longer wavelengths do not carry enough energy to allow photosynthesis to take place.

    Compass

    • Manufacturer: Young
    • Model: 32500
    • Info: Electronic Compass, serial interface

    GPS

    • Manufacturer: Azimut Marine
    • Model: SA-320

    pH Sensor

    • Manufacturer: SensorLab
    • Model: SP200-SM
    • Info: The SP200-SM is a High accuracy colorimetric pH sensor designed for in situ operation in shallow waters. The SP200-SM pH sensors has no significant drift, even after operating for several months. The sensor can be autonomously operated thanks to its internal Li-Ion battery.

    CO2 Sensor

    • Manufacturer: Pro-Oceanus
    • Model: CO2-Pro CV
    • Info: The CO2-Pro CV instrument measures the partial pressure of CO2 gas dissolved in water using infrared detection. Standard ranges from 0-600 ppm up to 0-10,000 ppm provide the full spectrum of pCO2 needed for accurate measurement of ocean, coastal, riverine and lake CO2 levels.
