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
  • Data Well Dimensions: 10.3” (26.16cm) inside diameter; 21.5” (54.61cm) tall
  • Weight: 215 lbs. (97.52 kg)
  • Buoyancy: 650 lbs. (294.84 kg)
  • Hull Material: Cross-linked polyethylene foam with polyurea coating & stainless steel deck
  • Tower/Hardware Material: 316 stainless steel
  • Mooring Attachments: 1 or 2 point, 3/4” eyenuts
  • Solar Power: (3) 30-watt 12 VDC solar panels
Questions & Answers
How are these buoys protected from impact by moving vessels in the open ocean?

An optional CB-RR radar reflector is available to make these buoys visible on radar screens.

Once deployed, are instruments accessible without pulling in the equipment?

Yes, there are 4" instrument holes with female NPT pipe threads that can secure a deployment pipe for multi-parameter sondes and other sensors to be accessed from the top of the buoy hull.

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.

Plenty of plastic in the Great Lakes

Despite the high profile of plastic pollution in the ocean, the same problem in the Great Lakes is not well understood. “Believe it or not, we’re kind of in the early stages of understanding plastic pollution in the Great Lakes,” said Sherri Mason, sustainability coordinator and professor of chemistry at Penn State—Behrend . She’s one author of research published in January in the Journal of Great Lakes Research examining the levels of plastic in Lake Erie and, for the first time, Lake Ontario.  [bctt tweet="The research revealed the highest level of plastic pollution in any of the Great Lakes occurs in Lake Ontario. Lake Erie was a distant second.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institutes Wireless Plan to Connect to MARS

Engineers and scientists that specialize in aquatic measuring practices always meet extra costs on the path to deployment. Maybe it is the corrosive nature of the saltwater, or the unbearable pressure tools must be equipped to handle while lying on the ocean floor. For anyone interested in hooking up with the MARS (Monterey Accelerated Research System) Observatory , which rests dozens of miles off the California coastline, the costs extend further. They get so high that only well-funded universities and governmental agencies can afford to connect with the underwater power and data hub. Hoping to lower that cost, engineers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute ( MBARI ) constructed a wireless device called Deep-Sea Connect.
