Field Ready and Rugged
The CastAway CTD is a hand deployable conductivity, temperature, and depth instrument for hydrologic profiling. An integrated LCD screen displays an intuitive user interface for deployment and immediate review of collected data including both statistics and profile plots. The watertight, compact design features a tough rubber jacket for additional durability in harsh conditions. The system utilizes Bluetooth wireless communication, so no field cables or connectors are needed. Two AA batteries power the CTD for several days at a time and are easily replaceable without the use of any tools. This handheld device is an affordable, rugged, and portable instrument that simplifies any water profiling application.

Intuitive
With three taps of a magnetic stylus pen, simply drop the CastAway in the water, pull it up, and have conductivity, temperature, and depth measured in minutes. An attractive LCD screen provides easy access for setup, deployment, and immediate data review. Integrated GPS virtually eliminates the need for field notes. The beginning and end of every cast is logged to the internal recorder with position and time.

CTD Profiling and Analysis Software
Reviewing and analyzing CTD profiling data has never been easier. The included GIS software quickly downloads data from each of your CastAway CTDs automatically over Bluetooth to show the location of each cast on an interactive map.

Saltwater Intrusion, Elevation Data Gathered For Georgia Sea Rise Modeling

Georgia has about 30 percent of all the existing salt marsh on the United States’ eastern seaboard. Much of that is expected to migrate inward with predicted sea level rise in the future, possibly impacting plant and animal habitats and commercial fisheries. Understandably, scientists have many questions for what these moving marshes could bring about. A few at the University of Georgia’s Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and Georgia Southern University have embarked on a study to model what the state’s coasts will look like within the next 100 years. Scientists are focusing their efforts on five coastal river systems: the Savannah, Ogeechee, Altamaha, Satilla and St. Marys. Work has been completed to gauge saltwater intrusion on three of those.

Advanced Technologies, Deep Waters, and Surprise Jellyfish

This year land dwellers everywhere can catch some crisp, detailed images of a rarely seen deep-sea jellyfish, Deepstaria enigmatica , with nothing more than an internet connection. City University of New York (CUNY) professor Dr. David Gruber and a research team caught their surprise encounter with the Deepstaria off the coast of Mexico with the help of a specially designed underwater camera. “We were not looking for Deepstaria enigmatica . Deepstaria enigmatica found us!” exclaims Dr. Gruber. “On most deep-sea explorations, we are usually the first people to view the dark, submerged seascapes. Our planet is 71% covered by oceans, that's, on average, over 12,000 feet deep.
