The CB-25-SVS Wave Buoy by NexSens Technology offers the latest in real-time wave observations in a compact, affordable, and easy to deploy platform. At 18” hull diameter and less than 30 lb. (13.6kg) weight, it can be used for drifting, tethering or mooring applications. The buoy accurately measures wave height, period, direction, and more using SeaView Systems’ industry-leading SVS-603 sensor, relied upon in buoy networks by NOAA and many others throughout the world. External sensor ports with wet-mate connectors support GPS, meteorological, and water quality sensors for maximum flexibility.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin. A rechargeable battery with integrated solar panels power the wave buoy continuously, and all electronics are housed in a quick-removable waterproof package with wet-mate connectors. Three 1.5” pass-through holes facilitate cable routing of underwater sensors.

Available with integrated 4G cellular or Iridium satellite communications, the CB-25-SVS Wave Buoy sends data in real-time to the cloud-based WQData LIVE datacenter. In a basic configuration, this free service allows users to securely access and analyze data, as well as share data through an API or auto-report. Subscription-based tiers of WQData LIVE are also available for advanced reporting, alarming, and data management.

Charles River Algal Blooms Stop Swimming and Launch a Floating Wetland

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents. Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river. An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.

Harnessing the Gulf Stream for Renewable Energy

The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use. Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.
