Abstract:

The report describes the second-generation absorption meter a-meter. The system uses two self-powered pulsed light sources and two detectors. One source is equidistant from the two detectors and provides an in-situ calibration method. The other source is located about one-third as far from one detector as from the other detector. The detectors and light sources operate at ambient pressure, in contact with the water. Fifty-ohm coaxial line is used to transmit the signals to the deck. A solid-state circuit on deck provides measured values of a the absorption coefficient directly on a digital voltmeter. A signal is also provided with which to drive a chart recorder. Author
