Eddy Covariance System

Complete system to study benthic fluxes in aquatic environments

With the complete Plug ‘N'Deploy Eddy Covariance System, you can study benthic fluxes in aquatic environments. The eddy covariance technology is becoming a standard methodology for benthic research measuring flux of O2, H2S, and temperature. Read more...

Eddy Covariance System

Measure benthic multiple parameter flux

The technique allows non-invasive in situ measurements of flux in the hydrodynamic boundary layer of permeable sediments, seagrass beds, or coral reefs by simultaneous measurements of vertical velocity and concentration of e.g. oxygen, thus being a complementary method to profiling studies and chamber incubations.

Your system

Depending on your application, you have a choice of a heavier ROV manageable frame or the lightweight Berg frame. The Field DataLogger gives you 4 high speed channels, full system integration, and is customizable for serial devices. If you add the Field MicroOptode Meter, you get 2 fast optode channels, and our temperature sensors enable fast temperature compensation. LAN support allows you to study near real-time data and, via PC interface, to configure and adjust system settings.

EC sensor + vector

One solution

The Eddy Covariance System provides a full, customizable solution for your eddy covariance flux studies. The data can be analyzed through the complementary and peer-reviewed Berg eddy flux software or exported to CSV files for further analysis.

The Field DataLogger is the core electronics in all of our Field Systems, providing you with one control unit for MiniProfiler MP4/8, Eddy Covariance System, and our MiniChamber Lander System.

Bringing two oxygen sensing technologies together

By adding our Field MicroOptode Meter to the Eddy Covariance System, you gain the option of choosing between two oxygen sensing technologies or to use both at the same time.
