Measurement Services

Rockland Scientific provides measurement services for the field or lab. Rockland’s versatile microstructure measurements technology paired with experienced field technicians and staff scientists enable data acquisition from ships, moorings or autonomous moving platforms such as AUVs, ocean gliders and profiling floats.

Rockland Measurement Services produce high-resolution data sets of:

  • Velocity shear
  • Temperature gradient
  • Salinity
  • Temperature
  • Rate of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy (epsilon)
  • Buoyancy frequency
  • Vertical eddy diffusivity

Other Parameters:

  • Chlorophyll
  • Turbidity
  • Dissolved oxygen
  • Flow velocity

Our team of developes, scientists and field technicians support the entire lifecycle of your research project including:

  • Development of the initial proposal
  • Customization of data acquisition systems
  • Assistance with field measurements
  • Data processing
  • Data interpretation and reporting

Our strong scientific background and broad experience with challenging deployments has positioned us as a leader of turbulence measurements in oceanographic, estuarine, and limnological environments.

Leasing Microstructure Instrumentation:

Rockland has a limited pool of instrumentation and equipment available for lease. Rockland technicians are available to accompany lease equipment to ensure the collection of high quality data on your next measurement campaign. Please contact us for more information.

InSTREAM Project Characterizes and Models Turbulence from Tank Test to Tidal Channel

The recently completed InSTREAM project assessed fundamental differences in turbulent flow measured in the field, generated in a tank and simulated in a numerical model To mitigate the risk and uncertainty associated with turbulent flows in tidal channels, developers often use tank experiments and numerical simulations to assess the power and loading performance of a […]
