Sea-Bird Scientific Launches New Oil-in-Water Sensor
Sea-Bird Scientific is pleased to announce the launch of the new SeaOWL UV-ATM in-situ oil-in-water sensor. Based on the highly successful WET Labs ECO sensor, the SeaOwl UV-ATM introduces industry-leading oil-detection technology that creates a 5X optical resolution improvement over its predecessor. By combining three optical sensing techniques, this unique instrument greatly minimizes false positives, reducing operational cost and risk related to sub-sea oil leak-detection.
SeaOWL UV-ATM is configured to measure:
- Chlorophyll fluorescence
- FDOM (Fluorescent Dissolved Organic Matter)
- Industry-leading optical resolution
- Wide dynamic gain prevents measurement saturation even within heavily impacted environments
- Three parameters in a single sensor: chlorophyll, backscattering, and Fluorescent Dissolved Organic Matter (FDOM)
- Backscattering and chlorophyll fluorescence provide discrimination of crude oil from phytoplankton and other natural sources of FDOM
SeaOWL UV-ATM is manufactured at the WET Labs facility in Philomath, OR.

pH Now Available on the Navis BGCi Profiling Float
Sea-Bird Scientific's new Navis BGCi + pH adds the Satlantic Float Deep SeaFETTM pH sensor to the Navis BGCi package, providing CTD, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll a, backscattering, pH, and measurements from up to 3 other sensors in one integrated data stream. The Float Deep SeaFETTM, an adaptation of the Deep-Sea DuraFET developed collaboratively by MBARI/SIO/Honeywell, is integrated into the CTD's pumped flow path for bio-fouling protection.
