Details

The CB-40 Data Buoy offers a compact and affordable platform for deploying water quality sondes and other instruments that integrate power and data logging. The lightweight platform can be deployed from small boats, large vessels or even helicopters, making it the ideal choice for applications where water needs to be monitored at a moment’s notice. The buoy can also be used as an underwater float and instrument housing for subsurface deployments.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin and stainless steel frame. An optional 1-3 NM solar marine light mounts over the topside access hole, and three eyenuts offer a convenient lifting point. The CB-40 supports a 1, 2, or 3-point mooring via bottom bow shackle and three eyenuts. Optional accessories include chain, shackles and anchors for buoy mooring.

The CB-40 Data Buoy weighs 38 lbs. with no payload and approximately 45 lbs. with integrated solar marine light and water quality sonde. The 4" stainless steel instrument pipe securely houses the instrument and includes slotted holes for water flow. Compatible instruments include YSI 6-Series & EXO sondes, Hydrolab Series 5 & HL sondes, Eureka Sub 2 & Manta 2 sondes, and In-Situ TROLL 9500 instruments.

Subtleties of Submarine Groundwater Discharge and Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are among the world's most diverse ecosystems , home to about one-third of all oceanic species of fish, and tens of thousands of marine species in total. Coral reefs are also valuable to humans, sheltering coastal areas from storms and offering billions in food and income all over the world. Unfortunately, many reefs have been permanently damaged or destroyed, and of those that remain, about 75 percent are threatened. Those reefs that lie very close to shore, nearshore coral reefs, are in many ways the most important to humans—and the most imperiled.

Bioinspired Mantis-Cam Enables Underwater Geolocation

Viktor Gruev is a busy person. He's a professor twice over, at the University of Illinois in electrical and computer engineering, and at the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, where his research in imaging technologies leads to better diagnostics and treatments for patients. Gruev also spends a lot of time taking cues from nature, and he spoke to EM about recently publishing on two different innovative sensing technologies. “We had two big papers that came out this week,†explains Gruev. “One was on this underwater geolocalization camera , and the second paper that just came out yesterday focuses on a butterfly-inspired camera for cancer detection.

Chiral Water Reveals New Pathways Toward Desalination and Purification

A serendipitous discovery may lead to new water purification and desalination technologies. Corresponding author Mihail Barboiu of the National Center for Scientific Research , or CNRS, a public organization governed by the French Ministry of Education and Research, corresponded with EM about the research . “We discovered artificial water channels by accident,†explains Barboiu. “Our research has been focused on materials for fuel cells, using imidazole-based molecules to build the system. We didn’t expect that these systems could form channels—and more importantly, would be highly selective for water! They were the first artificial water channels, selectively transporting water against ions.
