more information

The MiniChamber Lander is designed for shallow-water chamber measurements with multiple microsensors (oxygen, H2, N2O, pH, H2S) mounted in the chamber lid. The syringes of the syringe water sampler are prepared by the user for either sampling or injection.

Deployment is done by lowering the MiniChamber Lander onto the seafloor. When it reaches the seafloor, the lid will close and measurements can start. Sensor measurements, stirrer activation, and syringe sampling is easy programmed via a PC software interface and data are simply exported to a PC after deployment for further analysis.
