Instrument performance verification is necessary so that effective existing technologies can be recognized, and so that promising new technologies can become available to support coastal science, resource management, and ocean observing systems. The Alliance for Coastal Technologies (ACT) has therefore completed an evaluation of commercially available in situ salinity sensors. While the sensors evaluated have many potential applications, the focus of this Performance Verification was on nearshore moored and profiled deployments and at a performance resolution of between 0.1 – 0.01 salinity units. In this Verification Statement, we present the performance results of the YSI 6600 sonde equipped with the model 6560 salinity sensor evaluated in the laboratory and under diverse environmental conditions in moored and profiling field tests. A total of one laboratory site and five field sites were used for testing, including tropical coral reef, high turbidity estuary, sub-tropical co.....
