Overview
Bright Dyes act as a coloring label on each drop of water. As that water or liquid travels, it can be identified at each point on its travel until it reaches extreme dilution. It may be detected visually, by ultraviolet light and by appropriate fluorometric equipment. The dyes selectively absorb light in the visible range of the spectrum. They are fluorescent because, upon absorbing light, they instantly emit light at a longer wavelength than the light absorbed. This emitted (fluorescent) light goes out in all directions. Most common fluorescent tracers are compounds that absorb green light and emit red fluorescent light.

Absorption Resistant
FWT red dye is resistant to absorption on most suspended matter in fresh and salt water. Compared to Bright Dyes FLT Yellow/Green products, FWT Red is significantly more resistant to degradation by sunlight and, when used in fluorometry, stands out much more clearly against background fluorescence.

Questions & Answers
How do I dilute this dye for a 125 mg/L rhodamine standard?
Using this dye, various dilutions can be performed to get to industry standard solutions following the instructions on page 129 of the YSI EXO Manual. www.fondriest.com/pdf/ysi_exo_manual.pdf

Going, Going, Gone: Endangered Species Recovery and Conservation

Across the planet, biodiversity and natural habitats are declining dramatically. Countless species of flora and fauna around the world are being listed as either threatened, endangered, or extinct. According to a 2019 UN Study , around one million species are already at risk of extinction. Unless action is taken to reduce the causes of biodiversity loss, many of these species could disappear within the next few decades. Invasive species, habitat destruction, pollution, and other environmental stressors are all major causes of biodiversity decline. While high biodiversity is synonymous with places like the Amazon Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, it can also be found locally.

CastAway Doubts about Conductivity, Depth and Temperature Monitoring

The Sontek CastAway-CTD is a castable device that measures conductivity, temperature and depth. The instrument has been used in the field for over a decade by oceanographers, limnologists, divers, fishers and educators. There have been few changes since the first iteration in 2010, showing that the instrument is durable and accurate without requiring new models.   The CastAway is the first conductivity, temperature and depth (CTD) instrument of its kind. While other CTDs are large and cumbersome to deploy, with cages and isolated sensors, the CastAway is a small, lightweight and easy-to-use instrument. Typical CTDs utilize pumps to ensure water flows over the sensors during deployment.

Dimethyl Sulfide: A Key to Marine Sulfur Biogeochemistry

Christopher Spiese is assistant dean at the Getty College of Arts & Sciences, acting director of the school of social sciences and human interaction, and associate professor of chemistry at Ohio Northern University. He is also a marine sulfur enthusiast. Marine sulfur biogeochemistry, which involves the cycling of sulfur through aquatic biological and geological systems, is essential for the functioning of marine life. However, the exact chemistry involved is not entirely known, piquing the interest of researchers like Spiese. “I went into marine sulfur biogeochemistry during my graduate work. I completed a doctoral environmental chemistry program at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) under David Kieber.
