The Alliance for Coastal Technology (ACT) conducted a sensor verification study of in situ nutrient analyzers during 2016 to characterize performance measures of accuracy, precision and reliability. The verification including a week of laboratory testing along with three moored field deployments in freshwater, estuarine, and oceanic coastal environments. Laboratory tests of accuracy, precision, and range were conducted at the University of Maryland’s Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) in Solomons, MD. A series of five tests were conducted to evaluate performance under controlled challenge conditions including: concentration range, temperature, salinity, turbidity, and dissolved organic carbon. All laboratory tests were conducted in 250 L polypropylene tanks using RO water as the initial matrix, within a temperature controlled room. Instruments sampled from a common, well-mixed, test tank maintained at a documented level of known challenge condition. Instruments were set-u.....
