Barkley Canyon Axis Fluorometer Turbidity Deployed 2021-08-21

The WET Labs ECO FLNTURTD 5069 was deployed on 2021-08-21 at Barkley Canyon Axis. Barkley Canyon Axis is located within Barkley Canyon, where benthic processes, biodiversity, sediment dynamics are observed. This device is a Fluorometer Turbidity. Fluorometer Turbidity instruments measure chlorophyll fluorescence and turbidity within the same volume of seawater. The instrument uses a light emitting diode (LED) to provide an excitation source. The fluoresced light is received by a detector at a particular angle from the LED source, and uses an interference filter to discriminate against scattered excitation light. Turbidity is measured at the same time, by detecting scattered light from a LED, which is positioned at the same angle as the chlorophyll fluorescence. It was deployed on a fixed platform. Data from this deployment were archived and made available through Ocean Networks Canada's Oceans 2.0 digital infrastructure, with quality assurance and derived data products following established practices.
