In response to a growing demand, Nortek AS and Seatronics do Brasil are thrilled to announce our new sales and service partnership in Brazil.
As a sign that Nortek’s Aquadopp Current Meter is truly the standard instrument for ocean current measurements, oceanographers at the Institute of Oceanology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOCAS), have chosen it for its pilot project “Western Pacific Ocean System (WPOS): Structure, Dynamics and Consequences.” A total of 69 Deepwater Aquadopps will be used to provide 3D current measurement at various deep water sites.
Researchers at the University of Virginia and Florida State University team up to quantify sediment-water fluxes of oxygen using the noninvasive eddy correlation technique. The fluxes, used as proxy for carbon cycling, are derived from simultaneous measurements of water velocity and oxygen concentration. The Nortek Vector has become the velocimeter of choice for these measurements due to its ability to record external sensor outputs – in this case oxygen – along with velocity data.
Nortek B.V. representative Qingdao Sunic-Ocean Marine T&S Co. Ltd., a leading global company, will be supplying 7 SeaDarQ Radar-based Oil Spill Detection and Monitoring Systems to CNOOC Limited and TianJin MSA in China.
Recently, researchers with the Limnological Institute at the University of Konstanz in Germany used the Nortek Vector and Aqaudopp HR Profiler to measure toxic, gas vesicle-producing cyanobacteria (Planktothrix rubescens) in the field.
Despite the troubled waters, Spain is still sailing in these days. The Instituto Español de Oceanografía's (IEO) need for reliable deepwater current meters continues to grow.
