A sonar sensor capable of measuring fluid flow and used to measure the rate of oil flow from the Deepwater Horizon wellhead.
Conductivity, Temperature, Depth (CTD) Sensors
One of the primary tools used by oceanographers to determine the basic physical and chemical properties of sea water in the Gulf.
Tethys Mass Spectrometer
A compact mass spectrometer developed at WHOI used to do in-situ chemical analysis of the oil plume and of unaffected waters in the Gulf.
Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography (GCxGC)
A relatively new analytical technique, GCxGC is able to provide high resolution data of complex samples or of materials in complex mixtures.
Fourier-Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometer (FT-ICR-MS)
An ultra-high sensitivity mass spectrometer capable of detecting small quantities of a substance in complex samples and used to measure the fate of dispersants in Gulf waters.
