About this book

After a definition of quantities measured and of quantities inferred from them by calculations, this book details the functioning of sensors and instruments used to assess the useful parameters in oceanography: temperature, conductivity, pressure, sound velocity, current in magnitude and direction, time and position with the global positioning systems, height of water and tide, waves, but also optical and chemical properties like turbidity, dissolved gas (O2, CO2), pH, nutrients and other dissolved elements.
