Each SMC cable that protrudes from the nose cone of a VMP, MicroRider, or MicroSquid is encased in 2 pieces of clear heat-shrink tubing. The clear tubing insulates the exposed metal of both the SMC cable shaft and the nut from the inner wall of the probe holder. Damaged tubing must be replaced so that […]
One of the most frequently occurring problems among our user group is moisture damage to the probes, SMC cables, and nose cone. There are several reasons moisture damage may occur. Poor installation of sensors: over-tightening or under-tightening the probe holder cap, or an ill-seated probe will compromise the integrity of the sealing surface. Installing sensors in the rain: […]
We will be at Oceanology International in London, UK, from March 15 – 17, 2016. We will be exhibiting at the Canadian Pavilion.
We will be at the International Conference on Ocean Energy in Edinburgh, UK from February 23 – 25, 2016. We will be at the Canadian Pavilion.
Rockland Scientific will be at the AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, NO, from 21-26 February, 2016. We will be in booth #212.
OS X El Capitan is currently not supported due to a conflict with the Mac OS provided USB drivers and RSILink. Communication using the RS232 connection is still possible, but file transfer using RSILink is not. A fix is in the works and will available soon. For a temporary work around, please see the documentation […]
The need for improved knowledge of turbulence statistics in tidal energy generation has led to a trans-Canadian collaboration between British Columbia-based Rockland Scientific International (RSI) and the Ocean Acoustics Laboratory (OAL) at Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University to develop advanced techniques for turbulence measurements at turbine ‘hub height’.These new techniques will be traceable to a laboratory […]
Spikes in data can be caused by environmental debris in the water column (phytoplankton, jelly fish, etc.). Regions of high biological productivity are more likely to result in lots of spikes in your data set. Such spikes can change the spectra and skew estimates of dissipation. Despiking detects anomalous, stand alone spikes in data and […]
A second cornerstone of our ODAS Matlab Library 4.0 is the new function odas_p2mat. odas_p2mat uses the configuration information embedded in the RSI data file to convert the binary data into data vectors in physical units for both raw signals and derived signals. The data vectors created by odas_p2mat are saved in a mat-file with the same name as the p-file. […]
