Scripps Technical Forum

Monthly Meeting

Date: Thursday, 12 June 2014  12:00PM - 1:00PM
Location: Munk Conference Room IGPP

Improve your oxygen optode measurements - user examples, practical handling and calibrations
Emilie Dorgeville, Product Manager
Aanderaa Data Instruments AS

The introduction of oxygen optodes more than 10 years ago created new possibilities in understanding oxygen dynamics in oceans and lakes. The intention of this presentation is to share some of the acquired experiences using these sensors. The technology and how it has evolved will be briefly described. A wide range of scientifically oriented applications will be presented. Methods on how to enhance the oxygen data quality will be suggested including practical handling, simple field adjustments and advanced multipoint calibrations. An introduction to pCO2 measurements using prototype optodes will also be done.

Emilie graduated in 2001 as a Marine Engineer and has a Master Degree in Physical and Coastal Oceanography. She worked for the French Navy in the operational oceanography department and has been working at Aanderaa for more than 6 years as a Product Manager responsible for the Doppler products.

The Scripps Technical Forum (STF) is a grassroots effort to make technical expertise and resources more widely available within the UCSD/Scripps community; to enhance communications between technical staff and departments; explore extended opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration, technology transfer, and industry interactions; to explore innovative solutions to emerging challenges; to monitor and disseminate trends and new technologies; and, aid in personnel retention and enhance job satisfaction, including continuing education, and opportunities for job growth.

The group is open to anyone within SIO and UCSD interested in applied technology. We host a monthly midday meeting with free pizza and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry. Our monthly newsletter highlights events, people, places, and items.
