Dredging

Dredging can create plumes of high turbidity and can disturb and even damage fragile ecosystems. A variety of in-situ monitoring solutions help project managers evaluate turbidity and other critical levels with minimal impact to an operation’s workflow. The ECO series instrumentation allows for autonomous long term monitoring of turbidity by alerting dredging operators of problems. ECO sensors offer low operational cost and accurate data over the entire deployment with bio-fouling protection. Our WQM systems can be designed in many different configurations and expanded to monitor other water quality parameters, such as pH, conductivity, temperature, salinity, depth, colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM), dissolved oxygen (DO), chlorophyll fluorescence as well as turbidity.
 
 

WET Labs WQM Water Quality Monitor
The Water Quality Monitor (WQM) is designed to deliver core biogeochemical water quality parameters in coastal ecosystems from a single integrated package.
The C-Star incorporates a novel monolithic housing with a highly integrated opto-electronic design to provide a low cost, compact solution for underwater measurements of beam transmittance.
Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO)
The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of sensors incorporate a common set of options with a single basic design to make them ideal for a wide variety of deployments.
The c-Rover 2000 is an optical transmissometer designed for long-term deployment aboard profiling floats.

ECO Triplet-w
The ECO Triplet custom optical instrument is now available with active anti-biofouling. It features an evolutionary design that builds off the bio-wiper and faceplate available on the current ECO line.
Provides highly accurate measurements of PAR (400–700 nm) in all aquatic environments.
ECO Triplet
The Triplet is a a special-order, three-optical-sensor instrument available in a user-defined configuration. The Triplet addresses the need for multiple simultaneous scattering and fluorescence sensors for autonomous and unattended measurement platforms.
