Dataset

Name:
Pentland Firth Meygen AR1500 FLOWBEC Platform Fluorometer Data
Organization:
Research Start Date:
October 01, 2015
Country:
Receptor:
Technology Type:
Deploying the FLOWBEC Platform.
Description and Purpose of Data: 

The fluorometer measures turbidity and fluorescence, which can be used as a proxy for phytoplankton. The fluorometer will provide contextual data on biomass/productivity in the water column testing the hypothesis formed at the EMEC tidal energy sites that the advection of productive water masses into the area may signal the arrival/presences of many other species. Measures of turbidity/visibility can be used to predict the perceptual range of animals that may impact and predict the behaviour of species around the turbine.

Frequency of Collection: 
When the FLOWBEC Platform is deployed and being powered.
