  • Description:
    "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) maintains a suite of conductivity/temperature (CT) sensors on a select number of its National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON) and Physical Oceanographic Real-Time (PORTS) stations. The data from these sensors can be used to calculate water salinity and density, which are important tools for safe navigation, especially in the determination of ship draft. Most CT sensors used on CO-OPS stations are manufactured by Falmouth Scientific, Incorporated (FSI). In a continued effort to explore evolving technology and to expand the suite of instruments available for operational use in its observatories, CO-OPS selected the Greenspan EC3000 CT sensor for test and evaluation. Before an instrument can be approved for operation on a CO-OPS platform, it must first undergo testing by CO-OPS' Ocean Systems Test and Evaluation Program (OSTEP). OSTEP designed a series of laboratory and field tests to evaluate the performance of the Greenspan sensors under a variety of conditions"--Executive Summary.
