Training Workshop: Using In-Situ Water Quality Sensors - Lagrangian and Eulerian Applications

CUAHSI and the University of Florida are offering a 3-day training workshop on using in-situ water quality sensors.

November 7 - 9, 2017

University of Florida • Gainesville, FL

Early Bird Registration Deadline: June 30, 2017

Regular Registration Deadline: July 31, 2017

A very limited number of student travel grants are available on a first come, first served basis to help defray the cost of travel to this course. Please visit the Student Travel Grants section for more information.


The emergence of reliable field deployable sensors capable of water quality measurements at temporal resolutions commensurate with hydroclimatic and ecological drivers enables a new class of environmental measurements and inferences. This course is intended for students, post-doctoral researchers and junior faculty; all researchers interested in exploring these emerging opportunities are welcome.

The objective of this course is to provide guidance and support for deployment of a wide variety of off-the-shelf in-situ water quality sensors, and quality assurance and interpretation of the resulting data. While the course will explore a broad array of sensor-derived measurements and applications, our particular focus for this workshop will be on the collection and interpretation of Lagrangian measurements (i.e., following a parcel of water as it moves).

A tentative list of sensors to be used:

  • Satlantic SUNA (nitrate)
  • Onset HOBO U26 (dissolved oxygen)
  • Vaisala GM221 (pCO2)
  • Turner Designs assorted (fDOM, pigments)
  • Campbell Scientific assorted (pH, specific conductance, temperature)
  • Wetlabs Cycle PO4 (phosphate)

  • When

  • Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - Thursday, November 9, 2017
    8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
    Eastern Time

  • Where

  • University of Florida
    Gainesville, Florida
