A researcher from from the National Oceanographic Centre will use YSI’s Castaway CTD profiling instruments in an expedition to the Arctic focusing on new ways to combat climate change.

Designed for fast, accurate profiling, the Castaway CTD can be thrown into the water and retrieved manually.

The device automatically records conductivity, salinity, specific conductance, density, sound speed, temperature profile data, depth and GPS position, so that no field notes or computers are necessary.
