Biospherical Instruments C-OPS spectroradiometer system

|Preferred Label||Biospherical Instruments C-OPS spectroradiometer system|
|Definition||A radiometer system used for determining apparent optical properties in aquatic systems. It consists of two 7 cm diameter radiometers: one measures in-water upwelling radiance, and the other either downward irradiance or upward irradiance. It also includes sensors for temperature, pressure/depth and tilt. Each radiometer is a cluster of up to 19, stand alone, microradiometers. Thus, each radiometer is equipped with up to 19 optical wavebands. The radiometers are mounted on a free-fall frame. The frame can be optimized for either slow descent rates for work in very shallow coastal waters, or faster descent rates for observations in the open ocean. The system has a spectral range of 250-1650 nm and maximum depth rating of 300 m (125 m for standard version).|
