Data buoys for measuring the salinity of major Dutch rivers
Observator Instruments has recently delivered seven OMC-7012 data buoys. These data buoys will be used to measure the salinity of the water at various points in the Lek, a river in the Netherlands. The buoys have a diameter of 120 cm and are equipped with a Saint Andrew’s cross, a top light and a radar reflector for safety reasons. The salinity is measured by a conductivity and temperature sensor, which is mounted below the waterline. This sensor is connected to an OMC-048 data logger.
