Process for protecting electrochemical sensors from biofouling in an aquatic environment
MetadataShow full item record
A process is described for protecting electrochemical sensors and the like from biofouling--the microbial colonization of sensor surfaces--in an aquatic environment. The process comprises creating an antibiofoulant gas atmosphere for the sensors between measurement operations. An apparatus is described which allows the practice of the process in a long-deployment, underwater monitoring system.
