The miniDOT logger is a completely submersible instrument that logs dissolved oxygen and temperature measurements. It includes an optical DO sensor, a temperature sensor, batteries and a micro SD memory card. Data are recorded internally with a sample interval from once per minute to once per hour and can be offloaded to a computer via USB cable.

The miniDOT sensor is an optode that measures lifetime-based luminescence quenching of a thin membrane. The sensing foil contains a coating that has a variable fluorescence that depends upon oxygen concentration in the surrounding water. The sensor is able to compute oxygen concentration in mg/L and record these measurements internally. Each logger is factory-calibrated at 12 oxygen concentrations each at 8 temperatures for a total of 96 calibration points.

Questions & Answers
How does the miniDOT measure dissolved oxygen?

The PME miniDOT determines DO in water using an optode that measures flourescence.

What software comes with the dissolved oxygen logger?

The PME miniDOT includes free Java-based Windows software for configuration the logger and offloading data. The software will also compute oxygen saturation from the miniDOT logger measurements. A USB to micro USB cable is sold separately and required to communicate with the logger.

How long will the battery last?

With a 1-minute sample interval, the logger will remain powered for approximately 1-year.

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.
