Underway measurement of CO2 partial pressure in surface sea water (SUNDANS)

The SUNDANS (Surface UNderway carbon Dioxide partial pressure ANalySer) is designed to measure the CO2 partial pressure in surface seawater on research vessels.

The SUNDANS design follows the recommendations from the Underway pCO2 system workshop (Miami, 2002) and is suited for (temporary) use on research vessels, where occasional supervision is possible. The packing size (without gases) and weight is kept small (2 aluminum boxes, < 100kg) to allow for shipping by air freight (a system for permanent installation and unattended operation on cargo ships in produced by General Oceanics, Miami, USA).

The SUNDANS is discontinued and no more available.
