The GTD-Pro™ is the most accurate and stable total dissolved gas sensor on the market. It measures the sum of the partial pressures of all dissolved gases, i.e. gas tension.
In most natural waters N2 and O2 are the dominant dissolved gases. When oxygen is measured independently, N2 can be determined from gas tension. These gases measured together can be used to make substantially improved estimates of net biological production.
Additionally, gas tension measurements are used to study air-sea gas exchange and upper-ocean physical, chemical, and biological processes.
Also available is the HGTD-Pro™ hurricane model that uses a patented supported tubular interface for faster equilibration than the GTD-Pro™.
