his ACT Technology Evaluation will examine individual sensor performance both in the laboratory and across different field conditions in moored and vertically profiled applications. We will focus specifically on commonly used inductive, conductive, and electrode based conductivity sensors with measuring ranges from 0 - 100 mS/cm. For those instruments that do not internally derive salinity values, we will the use the practical salinity scale approach using the formulas supplied in UNESCO Technical Memo by Fofonoff and Millard (1983). These derived salinity values will be reported without units per recommendations of the International Oceanographic community (reference). 3. Objectives and Focus of Salinity Sensor Performance Verification The fundamental objectives of this Performance Verification are to: (1) highlight the potential capabilities of in situ salinity sensors by demonstrating their utility in a broad range of coastal environments with varying sal.....
