Instrumentation and Metrology in Oceanography
Through research, physical oceanography aims tosolve the numerous problems stated by thermal, optical anddynamical properties of the oceans. Instrumentation andMetrology in Physical Oceanography describes the meansused in oceanography to determine physical properties of theoceans by medium of in situ measurements. This book explores the theoretical functioning of sensors andinstruments, as well as different practical aspects ofusing these tools. The content of this book appealsdirectly to technicians or engineers wishing to enhance theirknowledge of instrumentation and application toenvironment surveillance.
Instrumentation and Metrology in PhysicalOceanography details the functioning of sensors andinstruments used to assess the following parameters inoceanography: temperature, conductivity, pressure, sound velocity,current in magnitude and direction, time and position with GPS,height of water and tide, waves, optical and chemical properties(turbidity), dissolved gas (O2, CO2), pH,nutrients and other dissolved elements. Furthermore, this bookalso elaborates on the different means usedto obtain measurements at sea (boats, drifting floats,moorings, undersea platforms, gliders…) and techniquescurrently being developed.
