The NexSens CB-650 Data Buoy is designed for deployment in lakes, rivers, coastal waters, harbors, estuaries and other freshwater or marine environments. The floating platform supports both topside and subsurface environmental monitoring sensors including weather stations, wave sensors, thermistor strings, multi-parameter sondes, Doppler current profilers and other monitoring instruments.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin. A topside 40” tall stainless steel tower includes three 30-watt 12VDC unbreakable solar panels, and a center 10” ID x 21.5” tall data well accommodates batteries, data loggers, sensors, and more. Three 4” pass-through holes with female NPT bottom threads allow for quick connection of instrument deployment pipes and custom sensor mounts. The stainless steel frame supports both single point and multi-point moorings.

The CB-650 Data Buoy is optimized for use with NexSens data loggers. Wireless telemetry options include Wi-Fi, spread spectrum radio, cellular and Iridium satellite. Compatible digital and analog sensor interfaces include RS-232, RS-485, SDI-12, VDC, mA, and pulse count. The top of the instrument well includes 8 pass-through ports for power and sensor interface. Each port offers a UW receptacle with double O-ring seal for a reliable waterproof connection.

  • Hull Dimensions: 38" (96.52cm) outside diameter; 22" (55.88cm) tall
  • Tower Dimensions: 40” (101.60cm) tall, 7/8 tubular

Tsunami's Effects Lasting Years for Marine Creatures

Adrift on the open ocean, even aquatic species can feel stranded, without their usual habitats and food sources. This has been the situation for various species post-201 1 Japanese tsunami   for years now. Researchers are digging into the lasting effects this displacement could have on them—and on the places they end up. Dr. Linsey Haram , a postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) , spoke to EM about her research following the winding path of some of these species. "I wasn't directly involved with the tsunami debris work because I hadn't started working at the Smithsonian," explains Dr. Haram.

A Lesson in Persistence: Taking On Cyanobacteria in Florida

As we hear more and more about algal blooms of different kinds across the United States, teams of scientists are working hard to ensure that they don't become our new normal. One project in Florida is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem—including genetic analysis. The team's work is part of a full-court press in Florida recently, making a serious push to understand what is triggering more frequent blooms. Jose Lopez, Ph.D. , of Nova Southeastern University , the primary investigator on the genetic analysis portion of the project, spoke to EM about the project and his work on it. “This is a very good project,” explains Dr. Lopez. “We're excited about it, and it's a lesson in persistence.” Dr.

Keeping TABS on the Texas Gulf Coast

From extreme weather such as Hurricane Harvey to spills and other accidents, the Gulf Coast of Texas is no stranger to dangerous situations. This is where the data provided by the Texas Automated Buoy System ( TABS ) comes into the picture. Among the nation's most successful and longest-running coastal ocean-observing systems at the state level, the TABS real-time oceanographic buoy system monitors currents, waves, salinity, winds, and other parameters. Dr. Anthony Knap , director of Geochemical Environmental Research Group (GERG) and a Professor of Oceanography at Texas A&M University, spoke to EM about working with TABS. “TABS has been running now for 24 years,” explains Dr. Knap.
