Instrument: Spectrometer-WPI UltraPath

Instrument Short Name: Spectrometer -WPI
Instrument Description:

A spectrometer is an optical instrument used to measure properties of light over a specific portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The World Precision Instruments (WPI) UltraPath is a high-performance spectral absorbency system developed by WPI under a collaborative agreement with NASA (Stennis Space Center) for the spectroscopic determination of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in
seawater and fresh water environments. It was designed for use in the laboratory and in the natural environment. (manufacturer site:
