Navocean and Mote Marine Laboratory collaborated to monitor for Harmful Algal Blooms outfitting a Turner Designs Cyclops Integrator with Chlorophyll, CDOM, and Turbidity optics in Nav2, a sail-powered ASV.
"This device does exactly what we need it to do. I manage water quality monitoring projects on a large lake in Virginia. We have had harmful algae blooms the past few recreation seasons and our organization was looking for a device that could give us real-time readings on chlorophyll and phycocyanin. CyanoFluor does just that. We are very pleased with our purchase and the support that the Turner Designs team provided in our purchasing process."
