SeaOWL-UV-A™ measures crude oil-in-water using the same UV-A excitation and blue emission wavelengths (370 nm EX, 460 nm EM) currently used in the ECO FDOM fluorometer. The SeaOWL UV-A™ improves the resolution and range of the ECO with a greater depth of field, optimized electronics and dynamic gain stage modulation.
The new dynamic gain provides industry-leading sensitivity across a large detection range, making saturation unlikely in even the most heavily impacted environments. The compact SeaOWL UV-A™ design also includes chlorophyll fluorescence and 700 nm backscattering measurements to discriminate crude oil from phytoplankton and other natural sources of FDOM.
- Industry-leading optical resolution
- Wide dynamic gain prevents measurement saturation even within heavily impacted environments
- Three parameters in a single sensor: chlorophyll, backscattering, and Fluorescent Dissolved Organic Matter (FDOM)
- Backscattering and chlorophyll fluorescence provide discrimination of crude oil from phytoplankton and other natural sources of FDOM
