The Argonaut-XR offers exceptional value for near shore deployments in less than 40 m of water. Designed specifically for mounting on the bottom of a river, channel, or harbor, the XR features a special mode that automatically adjusts one of its measurement cells for changing water level. Its small size, rugged build, and flexible system architecture make the XR attractive for both real-time operation and autonomous deployments. The basic autonomous system includes a Multi-Cell (current profiling) feature, an external battery pack, internal recorder, compass/tilt sensor, pressure sensor, and temperature sensor. Additional options such as a non-directional wave package, an external LCD data display, a SeaBird MicroCAT CT sensor, or a YSI multi-parameter water quality probe make the XR the centerpiece of a complete oceanographic or hydrologic data collection system.

 

  • Programmable 0.2 to 40m range
  • ViewArgonaut software
  • AutoTide - automatic sampling volume adjustments
  • Multi-Cell current profiling feature
  • Optional External LCD Data Display
  • Output compatible with FlowPack velocity-indexing software tool
  • Integrated compass, tilt, temperature, and pressure sensors
  • Optional CTD
  • Optional wave frequency spectra estimation
  • SDI-12 compatible
  • Proven SonTek reliability

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.

Covid clears the waters around Key West

In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a period of unexpected environmental optimism. Wild goats roamed the streets of a town in Wales after its residents retreated indoors. Air quality improved in metropolises around the world. As shipping paused or slowed down, the oceans were quieter than they have been for some time. Now research shows that water quality improved around Key West, Florida, during 2020, a year in which the Covid-19 pandemic kept people indoors and slowed boat traffic. A Visible Difference Henry Briceño first found out about the clearer water around Key West from locals who noticed a difference. So he decided to check those observations against the data.
