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 in situ turbidity sensors. Turbidity is a property commonly used to describe water clarity in both marine and freshwater environments, providing a gross assessment of the amount of suspended material. Differences in methods of measurement and their individual responses to varying types of suspended material have made the measurement of turbidity difficult to perform in a consistent and standardized way. This has necessitated many public-service agencies to define turbidity in very specific terms based on optical methods of measurement. Despite these limitations, a variety of in situ instruments that provide some measure of turbidity are commonly and succ.....
