Oil Spill Response - Fluorometer Applications

When oil spill response teams are dispatched to the scene of an oil spill it is critical they have the proper instrumentation to monitor the areas of contamination and the effectiveness of dispersants and burning techniques. The Special Monitoring of Applied Response Technologies (SMART) protocol was developed to guide responders  identifying and mapping very low concentrations of Crude Oil originating from spills in natural waters. In early 2010, the Turner Designs C3 Submersible Fluorometer was selected as the new standard for the SMART protocol together with a specialized instrumentation and mapping system. This system provides responders and government agencies a powerful, reliable and easy-to-use platform to collect and process oil spill data.
