Environmental Monitoring

Water is a fundamental resource that impacts human welfare at all levels. From agriculture to public health, the availability and quality of water defines our economies, population distributions, and core quality of life. With increasing populations and associated anthropogenic pressures, the demand for this resource spirals.

Accordingly, WET Labs sensors play a vital role in this process. Resource managers can use our Water Quality Monitors to cost effectively collect data in order to build and support sustainable programs that are key to environmental restoration and the development of aquatic resources.Scattering and attenuations measurements provide direct indications of water clarity. Chlorophyll fluorescence provides an indication of ecosystem health and serves as a proxy for other key nutrients. Direct nutrient measurements are also needed, because they indicate ecosystem status.

SeaOWL UV-A™ (SeaWater Oil Finder™)
Based upon the highly successful WET Labs’ ECO sensor, Sea-Bird Scientific has developed an industry leading detection technology creating a 5X optical resolution improvement over its predecessor.
The Water Quality Monitor (WQM) is designed to deliver core biogeochemical water quality parameters in coastal ecosystems from a single integrated package.
Bolt-on biogeochemical sensors are now available from Sea-Bird Scientific.
The new Navis BGCi offers a profiling float with an integrated data stream for a suite of biogeochemical sensors.
DH4 is a sensor for the collection, storage, and merging of digital and analog data from up to eight sensors.
The HydroCycle-PO4 is a single analyte wet chemistry sensor engineered for environmental monitoring.
Bench Top AFLA
WET Labs' Aquatic Laser Fluorescence Analyzer (ALFA) provides spectrally and temporally resolved measurements of key bio-environmental variables in oceanic, coastal, and fresh waters.
The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of sensors incorporates 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.
The Sea-Bird Scientific SeaOWL UV-A™ SLC introduces a new in-situ oil-in-water sensor specifically designed for integration into the Teledyne Webb Research Slocom glider.
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.
ACS-5000 Spectrophotometer
Based on the highly successful AC9 and ACS, ACS-5000 offers almost an order of magnitude increase in spectral resolution of in-situ absorption and beam attenuation. The 4 nm resolution allows for spectral "fingerprinting" and deconvolution analysis.
ECO FL fluorometers measure fluorescence from chlorophyll-a, CDOM, uranine, rhodamine, and phycoyanin and phycoerythrin.
The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of sensors incorporates a common set of options with a single basic design to make them ideal for a wide variety of deployments.
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.
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.
