Sea water monitoring is becoming a great area of research in the field of measurements and instrumentation. For many years, the sea monitoring interest was within the framework of climate changes due to sudden temperature variations, for example, El Niño phenomenon. But, with the increasing of maritime traffic, development of port activities as well as discharged urban waters after dedicated treatment, sea water needs to be monitored using, in general, spectroscopic and fluorescence methods for detecting specific pollutants. All equipments, in case of monitoring directly on sea, must obey to specific requirements in order to avoid misrepresentation of pollutant concentrations. We present a design of a special buoy for hosting instrumentation for marine monitoring. The architecture of the instrumentation is presented and an anti-shock simulation is also presented. A spectroscopy method using light is presented in this research for monitoring marine water.

Abstract

Sea water monitoring is becoming a great area of research in the field of measurements and instrumentation. For many years, the sea monitoring interest was within the framework of climate changes due to sudden temperature variations, for example, El Niño phenomenon. But, with the increasing of maritime traffic, development of port activities as well as discharged urban waters after dedicated treatment, sea water needs to be monitored using, in general, spectroscopic and fluorescence methods for detecting specific pollutants. All equipments, in case of monitoring directly on sea, must obey to specific requirements in order to avoid misrepresentation of pollutant concentrations. We present a design of a special buoy for hosting instrumentation for marine monitoring. The architecture of the instrumentation is presented and an anti-shock simulation is also presented. A spectroscopy method using light is presented in this research for monitoring marine water.
