Optimizing Ocean Measurements: An Instrumentation Workshop

April 8th, 2019 in Southampton, UK

The half-day workshop will be held by RS Aqua and RBR in Southampton on Monday, April 8th, from 1-5 pm, just before the start of Ocean Business. Their audience will include ocean scientists, instrumentation technicians, system integrators, and anyone interested in learning more about selecting the correct oceanographic instrumentation for research, and how it operates, is deployed and maintained. The workshop will be presented by RBR technical staff from Canada and will include time to address your specific questions and applications.

At RS Aqua they realise that ocean observations, as fundamental and exciting as they are, can also be challenging. They have found that those who take the time to become familiar with, care for, and understand the limitations and strengths of their equipment often have the greatest successes in the field. With this in mind, they’d like to invite you to attend and participate in the UK’s first RBR Technical Workshop on ocean sensors and observations.

This workshop is a forum to spark interest in understanding oceanographic sensor measurement methods, improving the quality of field data, increasing deployment success rates, and improving the safety of those conducting the observations. They will focus on best practices, practical maintenance, deployment considerations, and a few tips and tricks to help get the most from your equipment. The material covered is applicable to a wide variety of common oceanographic instrumentation.

Focused topics:

Sensor technology
Inductive conductivity measurements
Pressure measurements
Temperature measurements
Optical measurements
Technical considerations when selecting a sensor
Configuring instruments for deployment
Mounting & deployment considerations
Data processing
Sensor maintenance
Wi-Fi and mobile applications
