|SCAMP microstructure profiler
|A self contained, autonomous microstructure profiler designed to measure extremely small scale (order 1 mm) fluctuations of electrical conductivity, temperature, and chlorophyll concentration in aquatic environments. It has a maximum depth rating of 100 m, a travel rate of 10 cm/s and a sampling rate of 100 Hz. The instrument is powered by internal batteries that allow it to operate continuously for at least 4 hours. The fast conductivity channel uses a PME 4-electrode conductivity microsensor while the standard conductivity channel uses a PME 4-electrode ceramic sensor. The instrument has two available fast temperature channels, each using a Thermometrics FP07 thermistor, and includes a Keller PSI PAA-10 pressure sensor. Two gradient channels are used to store d/dt computations. These data can be used to infer the levels of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy, in-situ fluxes of heat and salt, and the microstructure behavior of these parameters. The chlorophyll fluorometer consists of a high intense blue LED and a 455 nm interface filter that illuminates a small water sample. Chlorophyll fluorescence is observed through a 685 nm interference filter by a photo diode detector. A Li-Cor LI-192SA PAR sensor can also be attached to the SCAMP. Data are stored on an internal data logger.
