A Dissolved Oxygen sensor measures the concentration of oxygen molecules that have been dissolved, or mixed, into seawater (Dissolved Oxygen Concentration).
There are a variety of Dissolved Oxygen sensors within the OOI program with unique capabilities. Some Dissolved Oxygen sensors are configured to measure dissolved oxygen concentrations on shallow coastal profilers through rapid oxygen gradients (DOFST, the Sea-Bird SBE 43 and 43F), while others are configured for use on mobile assets, deep profilers, and moorings (DOSTA, the Aanderaa optode).
This instrument measures the following data products. Select a data product's name to learn more.
- Oxygen Concentration from Fastrep DO Instrument (DOCONCF) DPS
- Oxygen Concentration from Stable DO Instrument (DOCONCS)
The algorithm code used to generate this instrument's data products is also available in the ion-functions GitHub repository.
