Ferry Box System now operating in Sydney Harbour


Sydney Harbour Ferry Monitoring System is temporarily offline.  When operating it measures dissolved oxygen, temperature, conductivity, chlorophyll a, fDOM and turbidity between Manly and Circular Quay.  Temperature is measured both within the FerryBox system (the sonde), and on the inside of the hull of the ferry.

The project, initially funded by NSW Local Land Services, is currently being maintained by Aquation.  Live data will soon be available at our webpage Ferry Box.

A brief presentation outlining the project and some results can be downloaded here: Runcie SOOP IMOS 07Mar16
