|CTD is an acronym for Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth. CTDs are commonly used by oceanographers and researchers for determining essential physical properties of water. CTDs provide data collected in a uniform sampling technique that gives scientists precise and comprehensive charting of the distribution and variation of water temperature, salinity, density and other parameters to help them understand how oceans, rivers and lakes affect life.
Fluorometers are commonly integrated with CTDs to expand the scope of properties being monitored. Stable, continuous data streaming and a depth range down to 6000 meters make fluorometers an invaluable addition to any CTD system.
Additionally, the PhytoFlash, a fluorometer that measures quantum efficiency, is available and designed to easily integrate with many different types of CTD platforms.
