Abstract:

Response characteristics of the Mark 3 CTD temperature and conductivity sensors have been determined. A 45 degree rotation of the thermistor bead assembly into the path of flow provides maximum dynamic response. The time constant for the temperature sensor was measured to be approximately 45 milliseconds while that of the conductivity sensor was measured to be approximately 20 milliseconds.
