Paper Abstract

Given the problems inherent in electrical sensing in the oceans and the advancing technology of fiber-optics, an optical sensing technique has been developed that measures the refractive index of different materials by wavelength modulation and relates these values to oceanographic parameters such as temperature, pressure, salinity, and density. The refractometer herein described is of innovative design and is capable of stable and remote operation.
