Data visualization for adopted floats from the SOCCOM project,
a US NSF sponsored project focused on carbon and climate in the Southern Ocean.
Connecting floats and schools across the country through SOCCOM's Adopt-A-Float program!
Adopted floats are either Webb Research Apex
or Sea-Bird Electronics (SBE) Navis profiling floats. Both models use
nitrate sensors and Deep-Sea DuraFET pH sensors to measure nitrate concentration and pH in the ocean.
Enter Ranges if Autoscale is Off (Min & max ranges
default to 0 and 200 if Autoscale
off and box is empty. Depth ranges
are entered as negative values on Y
axis and as positive values on X
--------------------- All floats include the following sensors, unless otherwise specified (SBE floats are also specified, as sensor models vary): ---------------------
-- N: An ISUS or SUNA nitrate sensor.
-- O: An Aanderaa Optode oxygen sensor (Sea-Bird SBE63 optical oxygen sensor for SBE floats).
-- pH: A Deep-Sea DuraFET pH sensor and pH is reported on the total proton scale.
-- FL: An FLBB biooptical
sensor for chlorophyll (470/695 nm Ex/Em) and backscatter (700 nm, 140 degrees).
(WET Labs MCOM FL, BB at 700 nm and CDOM optical sensor for SBE floats.)
D*: These floats have exhausted their batteries
and are not operating.
