Ocean & Coastal

Precision Instruments for Tough Environmental Conditions

Sometimes all you need is a little insight into waves, tides, and currents. However, other projects require sophisticated, complex and long-term ocean monitoring solutions involving a multi-faceted approach to data collection.

Whether in shallow coastal environments, or deep blue ocean, Xylem provides solutions for environmental research in oceanographic, hydrographic and climate research markets. We deliver the most technologically advanced self-contained and integrated remote underwater observation systems, environmental monitoring buoys, telemetry, water quality and velocity sensors in the world.

Ocean and coastal water quality monitoring applications require instrumentation that will survive in harsh environments. Analytical monitoring sensors are designed to meet stringent data accuracy requirements and have been proven during long term deployments. Features like wet mate connectors and titanium sensor housing result in higher data quality by eliminating many of the failure modes common in these challenging conditions.
