As part of our service to the coastal community, ACT Partner Institutions and Stakeholder Council have chosen the performance verification of commercially available, in situ turbidity sensors as the third ACT Technology Evaluation.Turbidity is a property commonly used to describe water clarity in both marine and freshwater environments, providing a gross assessment of light attenuation due to suspended material. However, turbidity is often not a direct measure of the quantity of interest, such as suspended sediment, living particles, and non-living organic matter , but rather a measure of the effect of the desired quantity on the optical properties of the water. At present, there are numerous methods for quantifying turbidity (e.g., light attenuation, surface scatter, side scatter, laser diffraction, acoustic back-scatter, etc.). Differences in methods of measurement and their individual responses to varying types of s.....
