As part of our service to the coastal community, ACT Partner Institutions and Stakeholder Council has chosen the perform ance verification of commercially available in situ dissolved oxygen sensors as the first ACT Technology Evaluation. There are a variety of dissolved oxygen sensors/electr odes currently available, many of which use polargraphic membrane measuring techniques. Recently, however, new optical luminescence dissolved oxygen sensors have been developed and are now on the market. Precise and reliable measurements of dissolved oxygen concentration (DO) with effective and reliable in situ sensors are critical for understanding many physiological and ecological processes and are required for a variety of coastal science and manage ment activities. For example, many coastal resource managers and scientists are interested in regions of very low levels of dissolved oxygen (hypoxia) in bottom-water or "dead zones". These areas of seas on.....
