Device details

Hi everyone,

For those of you who use a specific optical device, could you write a short section about it on the ‘Device’ page?
It would also be great to have some technical details (though they could be added later), incl.

  • min and max particle size that can be captured
  • volume of water that is captured
  • raw output format (e.g. image as .jpg, etc.)
  • level of identification; e.g. broad categories (particle, zooplankton), fine identification (down to genus level)
  • deployment details (towed, vertically lowered, on autonomous platform, etc)
  • deployment restrictions (depth? temperature?)
  • power consumption
  • need for calibration

Any other ideas?




Share your thoughts

Hi all,

I thought it would be good to have a platform, where we can write down ideas and comment on these. For example future directions, updates, definitions, problems, etc.

You can tag your post to help structuring the discussion. For example, use #esd if you want to discuss how to define particle size.

You can also address a particular member using the ‘at’ symbol. For example: ‘@saristar, this is awesome!’

Obviously, this website is not finished yet and will probably only serve as a mockup until we have the final website hosted on the noc server. This will then also include the database search and submission functions.

Until then, I will make anyone interested an admin, so that you can join the discussion, and add and alter the website. We need details for all devices and definitions/recommendations!

Let me know what you think!
