Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Can I change out my optical sensors?
No, the C3 Fluorometer offers 1, 2, or 3 factory-installed sensors of your choice, but they cannot be switched or added once installed.
Does the C3 Fluorometer include a battery?
No, the C3 Fluorometer does not include a battery. However, an external lithium battery pack is available for unattended use of the device.
How many uses will one battery charge allow?
The optional lithium battery pack is rated for 10,000 data lines per charge. The battery requires 8 hours to fully charge.
Are any of the Cyclops-7 sensors compatible with the C3?
No, all optical sensor options must be ordered with the C3 for factory integration
Does the pressure sensor use up one of the optical ports?
No, the pressure sensor and mechanical wiper are installed separately during the unit's manufacturing, and they do not interfere with the number of optical ports chosen.
What is the detection limit for the Rhodamine sensor?
The optional Rhodamine optical sensor has a minimum detection limit of 0.01 ppb and a dynamic range of 0-1000 ppb.

Looking back five years after Deepwater Horizon and the BP oil spill

The Environmental Monitor didn't even have a website when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded five years ago this week, killing 11 workers and leaving behind a gushing well that led to the largest-ever oil spill in U.S. waters. Not than anyone missed out from our lack of reporting on the event. The 24-hour news networks responded with wall-to-wall coverage, filling screen corners with live feeds of the seabed gusher or counters that ticked off the days, hours, minutes and seconds that the leak went unplugged. But the effects of the spill have lasted well beyond the life of the news cycle. Oyster populations declined in Louisiana after the spill, and though Reuters reports the cause is unclear , the oysters haven't recovered.

Turner C-FINS fluorescence monitoring and mapping system designed by users

Prototypes rarely make it to production unchanged, but the Turner Designs C-ray C3 fluorometer body went straight from garage prototype to production. It is incorporated into the Turner Designs C-FINS system , which spawned out of the need for a towable fluorometer that could be used during oil spill responses. The C-FINS , or Fluorometric Integrated Nautical Mapping System, allows users to combine any three Turner Designs Cyclops Fluorometers in a towable finned body based around the C3 monitoring system . It integrates global positioning system coordinates from an external GPS with RS232 connectability into samples measurements. Users can map algal blooms with a chlorophyll A fluorometer, or study an oil sheen with the Turner Designs crude oil sensor.

Study: Dispersants help oil penetrate deeper into Gulf Coast sands

Oil dispersants quickly dissipated oil during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, but the same chemicals may be causing oil to remain deposited deep in Gulf of Mexico beaches. A study found oil mixed with dispersants more easily enters sandy sediment, where it can penetrate deeper and last longer than untreated oil. In addition, dispersed oil releases more polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons into the environment. “At the moment it is difficult to say whether the positive or negative effects will dominate with the dispersants,” said and Markus Huettel, a professor of benthic ecology at Florida State University and coauthor of the study.
