Device Picture

Installed meteocenographic sensors

    HC Sensor

    • Manufacturer: OPW
    • Model: 30-3207-06
    • Info: This sensor indicates if there is any fuel in the area. It is a polymeric sensor that provides a qualitative measure, i.e, it only indicates it there is presence of fuel (value 1) or not (value 0)

    HC Crude Oil Sensor

    • Manufacturer: Turner Designs
    • Model: Cyclops 7 "O"
    • Info: Optical sensor that provides the concentration (in ppb) of crude oil in sea water. According to NOAA, crude oil is a naturally occurring, unrefined, flammable mineral liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons and other organic compounds which accumulates in reservoirs beneath the Earth's surface and is used as a source of energy (i.e. petroleum in its natural state prior to refining processes).

    Temperature Sensor

    • Manufacturer: Desin
    • Model: PT-100
    • Info: Resistive sensor that measures how cold or hot is the sea surface in Celsius scale.
