Summer of Suspension

Here at Aquatec we are passionate about sediment, so this summer, we thought we would share all of our experiences with you on this platform.

Watch this space as Aquatec will be introducing new competitions, a special edition of the Equipment Awards and more!

Calling all post-graduate students and young professionals in the ocean and environmental science sector. The Equipment Awards are back to give you the chance of using Aquatec’s established instruments for your research project.

The Equipment Awards just got even more exciting with the introduction of a Summer of Suspension special. On this occasion, the lucky winners will have free use of Aquatec's commercially established AQUAlogger 210TY turbidity logger, which now comes with the SSC Converter, and the new cutting-edge AQUAscat 1000LT acoustic suspended sediment profiler. The awards are open to Masters and PhD students, and early career researchers in their first two years of graduating. 

This is an unmissable opportunity, so if you fit the criteria, enter the competition today!
