Parameters: Cyanobacteria

The Southwest Virginia Governor's School (SWVGS) in Pulaski, Virginia recently hosted an annual science fair for gifted high school students.  Two SWVGS students, Brandi and Elliott, conducted independent research projects on cyanobacteria using a Cyclops Submersible Fluorometer from Turner Designs.  Brandi, a senior, collected phycocyanin data at a recently rerouted stream, a salient part of the local ecosystem and neighborhood community.  Brandi intends to make suggest...

Parameters: Cyanobacteria

Turner Designs’ Trilogy Fluorometer can efficiently and accurately quantify cyanobacterial biovolume, which has long been considered a major problem for water resource managers plagued with harmful algal blooms.  Using a simple extraction process, cyanobacterial abundance can be dependably estimated from measurements of the pigment, phycocyanin, the same day as sample collection.  In this way rapid responses to potential water quality threats posed by cyanobacteria are p...

Parameters: Cyanobacteria (Phycocyanin), Chlorophyll, Tryptophan

Turner Designs partnered with students from McAllen Independent School District’s International Baccalaureate Program (IB) at Lamar Academy during the summer of 2014.  These students participated in an annual Marine Ecology Camp through the IB school and The University of Texas - Pan American in Edinburg, Texas.  This year, in addition to their work on seagrass physiology, mangrove production, leaf fall, and decomposition dynamics,...

Parameters: Oil

In the Gulf of Mexico’s Mississippi Canyon, you’ll find undersea salt domes and mud volcanoes, known sources of natural oil seeps that rise to the surface of the ocean, producing oil slicks. These natural seeps can indicate the presence of energy reserves, both liquid and gas, and are of keen interest to the world’s oil and gas companies. Hydrocarbons that rise to the surface form very thin oil patches and surface slicks that are short lived. Traditionally, satellites along with s...

Parameters: Chlorophyll, DOM, Turbidity

The UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center (TERC) has been working to launch the world’s first, real-time Nearshore Network comprised of approximately 20 sites around the Tahoe basin. The first six stations, spanning both California and Nevada, were installed in August.

Each station consists of a Turner Designs C3 Submersible Sensor measuring turbidity, algal concentration, and dissolved organic material along with a RBRmaestro multi-channel logger mea...
