Details

The Solinst Levelogger Biofoul Screen is an affordable option to lengthen the time a Levelogger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge, or LTC Levelogger Junior can be deployed before maintenance is required.

 

When a Levelogger is deployed for extended periods, especially in coastal and saltwater environments, there is the risk of biofouling. Biofouling on the pressure sensor or conductivity cell can compromise the reliability of the readings.

 

Using the natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper, the Biofoul Screen is designed to reduce the unwanted buildup of microorganisms, plants, algae, or organisms such as barnacles and mussels.

 

The Biofoul Screen consists of a Delrin sleeve wrapped with copper wire. The Biofoul Screen simply slips onto the sensor end of the Levelogger, where it is held in place by friction fit. The screen allows water to freely enter the pressure sensor of any Levelogger, and the conductivity cell of an LTC.

Monitoring and Tracking Ocean Microbes with LRAUVs

In March and April of 2018, researchers from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UH Mānoa) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) deployed a small fleet of long-range autonomous underwater vehicles (LRAUVs) in the waters of the Pacific near Hawaii. These LRAUVs automatically collect and archive samples of seawater, enabling scientists to study and track ocean microbes with a level of detail that is unprecedented. Chasing eddies The team who undertook the expedition on the research vessel Falkor was hoping to survey and track Mesoscale eddies within the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) using a suite of oceanographic instruments.

Toxic Chemicals in Plastic Pollution Littering Freshwater Habitats

When we consider the glut of plastic rapidly accumulating all over the world , it's easy to see the problem of pollution and disposal of substances that don't biodegrade. However, it's not always as apparent to us that plastic pollution also means a growing number of toxic chemicals in the environment, many of which can be harmful to ecosystems. Plastic polymers and the products made from them are wildly diverse as to chemical properties, composition, and range of potential applications, although most plastics are made from petrochemicals. Throughout the very long lifespan of any given plastic product, the material may release various hazardous substances .

CO2 Cacophony in Acidified Oceans Will Confuse Baby Fish

Ocean acidification is a simple process that has complex effects. Increasingly acidic ocean waters create a cascading series of changes and problems for marine life, as each response to the changing conditions prompts other crises. Recent research from the University of Adelaide reveals a novel problem: baby fish will have more trouble finding and reaching shelter in the acidified oceans of our shared future, placing populations of various fish at risk. Despite how they may seem to humans, oceans are not silent worlds. They are filled with all sorts of noise, from fish sounds and whale vocalizations to the sounds produced by different kinds of habitats.
