National Institute for Environmental Studies buys second FastOcean APD for algal studies in Japanese lakes

After successful field studies with their first CTG FastOcean profiling system, acquired in early 2016, the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) in Japan has just purchased their second FastOcean profiling system.

NIES have been using CTG Fast Repetition Rate fluorometers (FRRf) for a number of years to study photosynthesis in lakes around Japan as part of a long-term environmental monitoring program. The new profiling system is destined for their Lake Biwa branch, located in the Shiga prefecture in Japan, as part of a jointly funded program.

Previous results obtained from this long-term monitoring program using CTG Fast Repetition Rate fluorometry are detailed in “Photosynthesis and primary production in Lake Kasumigaura (Japan) monitored monthly since 1981” by Noriko Takamura & Megumi Nakagawa (Ecological Research).

 

About Chelsea Technologies Group

Chelsea Technologies Group has over 50 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of a range of sensors and systems geared for a number of markets but in particular the oceanology market. CTG specialises in optical, acoustic and physical sensors measuring temperature, conductivity, hydrocarbons, fluorescence, water clarity and primary productivity. 

Customers have been using our high quality sensors and systems in a wide range of applications -  Submariners are using them to understand the environment they pass through, water authorities are using them to test water supplies. Scientists globally monitor changes in oceanic algae and the effects on climate change. Shipping companies have installed our state-of- the-art in-line sensors to monitor exhaust gas cleaning systems and assess the real-time performance of ballast water treatment systems. Our highly sensitive hydrocarbon fluorometers are used in glider based systems to provide persistent, real-time monitoring of hydrocarbon levels around drilling and production platforms. Demand for the CTG sensors and systems has also come from the process control, food and automobile industries.

Get in touch with us and we'll arrange to see you at Oceanology International.
