The Alliance for Coastal Technologies (ACT) tested PME’s miniDOT Logger over the past 18 months. Our logger was tested in both the laboratory and also at 3 field sites including fresh water, brackish water, and oceanic water. The adjacent plot summarizes the comparison of miniDOT measurements at three field sites with dissolved oxygen established by titration at each site. The dashed line represents perfect agreement.
Similar successful use of PME’s miniDOT Logger was achieved in field tests conducted at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory. Despite heavy fouling, miniDOT recorded a whopping 21,800 measurements at 5 minute sample interval.
Kristin Elliott Receives Award From The San Diego Business Journal
Out of 220 finalists, our CEO Kristin Elliott was one of the 24 award winners! She won alongside the Chief director of San Diego metropolitan water district. Keep an eye out for the full details of the event in the next issue of SDBJ!
Ocean acidification accelerates erosion of coral reefs
The acidification of our oceans is affecting the growth and sustainability of the coral reefs that live within them. Our C-Sense logger is capable of taking CO2 measurements in aquatic environments and can be something that can help researchers keep tabs on CO2 content in the ocean.
Coral reefs may be severely affected by rising CO2 levels
High levels of CO2 in the ocean lower the pH of water increasing its overall acidity. This effect is harming many types of organisms in coral reefs. Our C-Sense logger could be used by researchers to check the levels of CO2, keeping track of ocean acidification.
Fish Poached Alive Due to Improper Temperature Control
There has been a massive loss of aquatic life as well as revenue due to improper temperature control. Our inexpensive and very accurate MiniDOT loggers are used to monitor temperature and can be used to prevent such losses.
Mass Fish Deaths Could Be Prevented By Measuring Dissolved Oxygen Levels
In addition to temperature control, mass fish deaths can be caused by low levels of dissolved oxygen. Our miniDOT could be a key piece of equipment in researching how and why these dead zones occur in the first place, preventing fish kills in the future.
