Abstract

The project MITEC (Improved Microstructure Measurement Technologies for Marine Near Surface Flux Studies) was focussed on the development of an advanced system for measuring, processing, and evaluating oceanographic parameters -stratification, mixing, fluorescence, near surface microstructure and others -, that are essential to determine near surface fluxes which are required for a correct description of physical and biological processes in the surface boundary layer of natural waters.

The core of the project was the development of a multi-parameter microstructure measuring system for near surface measurements, including the software for data acquisition and data evaluation. The new measuring system is based on earlier developments of microstructure measuring technology: the microstructure measuring system MSS80 of the former Institute for Marine Research in Rostock-Warnemuende (Prandke et al., 1985, Prandke et al., 1988), and the EUREKA-EUROMAR project MICSOS (Prandke et al., 1995, Prandke and Stips, 1996).
