  • New monitoring technology helps reveal Arctic secrets

    A group of Arctic researchers has employed the latest monitoring technology to investigate the effects of climate change, by measuring temperature and salinity in the water column beneath surface ice. The results of the investigation, which utilised YSI’s new 'Castaway-CTD', could cast new light on our understanding of the ways in which shifting ocean currents impact upon the climate in ...

  • Comparison of Directional WaveGuide Radar with Directional WaveRider Buoy

    Abstract Down looking FMCW radars for measuring water level, tides and wave height have been in use for 25 years. A combination of three down looking FMCW radars, mounted on an o↵ shore location, can be used to accurately measure ocean wave height and wave direction. At locations where an o↵shore mounting construction is readily available, the major advantage of this relatively ...

  • Transparent exopolymer particles: Potential agents for organic fouling and biofilm formation in desalination and water treatment plants

    Transparent exopolymer particles (TEP) are ubiquitous in marine and freshwaters, and have been subject to intensive study by oceanographers and limnologists over the past 15 years. These microscopic organic particles (visualized by Alcian Blue staining for acid polysaccharides) may be considered a planktonic form of exopolymeric substances (EPS). Two aspects relating to the potential involvement ...
