MacArtney Nets Oceanographic Instruments Order from University of Bergen

MacArtney has secured an order for LISST instruments from University of Bergen, Norway.

LISST instruments are manufactured by Seattle based oceanographic instrument manufacturer, Sequoia Scientific, and used for environmental monitoring, industrial, and scientific application.

The order placed by University of Bergen with MacArtney consists of the LISST instruments LISST-VSF and LISST-200X. These products are to be used in the sea close to the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway for water optical property studies, the company informed.

The LISST-VSF measures the volume scattering function (VSF) of water with depolarization capabilities. These measurements are used by oceanographers and physicists to develop models for light propagation in water.

The LISST-200X, is capable of measuring sediment transport, dredge plumes, algae growth, and oil droplet dispersion in a wider size range, at larger concentrations, having a better depth rating, and with the ability to provide real-time output of mean particle size and concentration.

In addition to the two instruments, supplied complete with battery packs, the order comprises MacArtney deployment frames for both instruments, and a two-day on-site training course in Bergen headed by MacArtney personnel.

The training sessions will comprise both theoretical and practical sessions covering the fundamentals of light scattering as well as instrument deployment and subsequent data processing and interpretation.
