A research paper using the compact CTD sensor “JES10mini” was published in the academic journal “Sensors”. A research team conducted oceanic and atmospheric observations using a wave-propelled unmanned surface vehicle (Wave Glider), in the area off the Sanriku coast of Japan. Despite the severe weather conditions of atmospheric low-pressure system crossings, they succeeded in observing wind, air temperature, humidity, sea surface temperature and salinity etc. over the course of 55 days. In this observation, “JES10mini” attached to the wave glider is used to observe sea surface temperature and salinity.
