Equipment Check

August 20, 2014

Physical oceanographer Emily Shroyer (Oregon State University) examines a CTD (conductivity, temperature and depth) sensor specially designed to take measurements while a ship is underway. Shroyer used the CTD on a 2013 cruise in the Bay of Bengal on the R/V Roger Revelle. The CTD was one of several instruments used to measure turbulence, fresh and salt water mixing, and ocean biogeochemistry on the cruise. Shroyer and WHOI scientists Amala Mahadevan, Tom Farrar, and Bob Weller made the measurements as part of a project to understand how these processes affect phenomena such monsoons and El Nino in the Indian Ocean.
