Questions & Answers
Are mooring items needed in addition to the float?

It is generally recommended to add weight to the bottom ring for extra security.

Does the platform have the ability to be recognized above water? Like a marker buoy?

Yes, a mooring line with a marker buoy can be attached to alert recreators that monitoring equipment is below.

Can a data logger be used with this platform?

The EXO water quality sondes have an integrated data logger with battery pack for unattended monitoring with periodic data upload. If real-time data is required, we recommend cabling the sonde to a surface CB-Series data buoy with wireless transmitter.

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.
