Ocean-going technologies

The highly specific Instruments that are deployed in and on the open ocean are usually not available off the shelf. Most are adapted, designed,developed and tested in close collaboration between scientists of the department of Ocean Systems (OCS) and the technicians of the National Marine research Facilities (NMF). Their joint experience and expertise and the seagoing equipment itself is also available to the marine and maritime research community.  The OCS expertise is concentrated in the Deep-Sea and Technology Centre. For other ocean-going equipment that is frequently operated by OCS staff,  such as the video frame, sediment traps, ultra-clean CTD, thermistor string, please visit the NMF pages.
