This movie aims to describe the instrument set up installed on the buoy for monitoring the phytoplankton at high frequency. To watch the movie click here.
Data are acquired in real time and the cytometer is remotely controled by Wireless. Data can also be directly downloaded from the Buoy on a computer in the laboratory. The system is set up to be accessible from anywhere. It takes just a computer and an Internet access.
