LISST-BLACK – Oil-spill response instrument

The LISST-BLACK is a self-contained, stand-alone instrument system for use on profiling packages, towed and remote vehicle applications, for deployment during and after an oil spill event. The system will continuously measure particle size distribution and concentration, along with the fluorescence of refined fuels, crude oil and chlorophyll, as well as beam attenuation.

  • – Complete package based on Small Angle Forward Scattering Laser Diffraction Technology
    – Measures Particle Size and Concentration in 36 Size Classes
    – Integrated with Turner Designs Cyclops-7F fluorometers engineered to detect crude oil, refined fuels, and chlorophyll
    – Internal programmable datalogger
    – Small and Extended Battery Packs available for self-contained operation
    – USB connection to PC for programming, offloading and real-time size distribution displays
    – Programmable, autonomous data collection
    – Integrated Depth and Fast Response Temperature Sensors
    – Towable or integrated on profiling package or vehicle


The Turner Designs submersible instrumentation modules used in the LISST-BLACK includes single-channel fluorometers for detection of chlorophyll, crude oil and refined fuels. Together with particle information from the LISST, this package solution provides a comprehensive picture of potential contamination.
