Best practices for Multiparameter Water Quality Sonde operation

Friday, July 3, 2020
Course Description 

The goal is to familiarize users with the new EXO probe units, with datalogger and various sensors and accessories for oceanographic, estuarine, or surface water applications.

The EXO2 probe is one of the new generation of multi-parametric probes from YSI. It was designed to guarantee maximum flexibility and reliability to users, whether in the materials used in its construction or in the anti-vegetative accessories that allow the installation of the probes permanently, without loss of quality of the measured values.


The event will be held on July 3rd, at 09:30 in the Building 7, Gambelas Campus. Participation is free, upon registration. Registrations are open until 2nd of July 2020, 12h30.
Use of mask is required. Participants must keep 1,5 m of social distance.



Best practices to work with a versatile multiparameter EXO2 sonde for oceanographic, estuarine, or surface water applications. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific EXO2 sonde configurations and different available sensors, considering their research interests and applications.

Face-to-face training, with the probes and use of some videos (Youtube channel YSI) in order to use all the equipments with maximum safety and confidence in the results obtained.
