Have Instruments, Will Travel 

In early January, Ella Pereira traveled from Southern Brazil to WET Labs for training and to have service completed on several instruments. Ella hand-carried her instruments to WET Labs to allow for a quick 10 day turnaround in order to complete work required to get her and her instruments back into the field. Ella was preparing for a 2-month research cruise to Antarctica, and needed her damaged instruments to be serviced before they could be deployed.

 

The service teams at WET Labs and Sea-Bird Electronics came together to meet Ella's needs and were able to complete the service within the tight time frame. In addition to the service, the visit enabled us to work directly with Ella, training her on field service and maintenance techniques to enable her team to be more self-sufficient in the field. It was our pleasure to work with Ella and support her university's research efforts in the Antarctic. After a successful cruise, Ella sent back these stunning photos.

 

      

 

Sea-Bird Scientific Training in Qingdao
 
The Sea-Bird Scientific Science Team traveled to Qingdao, China in early May for the 2nd annual Sea-Bird Scientific Advanced Technology Seminar. The two day event was organized in conjunction with Laurel Technologies of Beijing and included over 100 attendees from across the Chinese oceanographic landscape. The workshop consisted of  two concurrent tracks covering topics varying from instrument and software setup, to deployment best practices, to data processing and interpretation. Workshop attendees were able to customize their own agendas between the two tracks to best suit their own particular needs.  
 
Specific session topics included: SBE 9-11plus setup, configuration, and data processing; WET Labs Aquatic Laser Fluorescence Analyzer sensor overview; Inherent Optical Properties systems data processing; Satlantic HyperPro II deployment and data processing; Satlantic SUNA and SeaFET data processing; biogeochemcial data processing for profiling floats; and a HOLOCAM sensor overview. Future training workshops in other regions are currently in the early planning stages. For more information, please contact us at info@Sea-BirdScientific.com.

Satlantic HyperPro II Deployment
 

Satlantic scientists took to the chilly Bedford Basin (connected to Halifax Harbour) in early April to deploy and test a HyperPro II Optial Profiler. During the test, they captured video discussing some of the best practices for deploying a HyperPro II. Watch the video here.
