Instrument: Wet Labs ECO Puck BB2F-VMG


The ECO BB measures scattering at 117 degrees, the angle determined as a minimum convergence point for variations in the volume scattering function (VSF) induced by suspended materials and water itself. As a result, the signal measured by this meter is less determined by the type and size of the materials in the water and is more directly correlated to the concentration of the materials. Conversely, the meter provides unparalleled accuracy for any single-angle measurement in determining the optical backscattering coefficient: an important parameter for remote sensing and in many in-water bio-optical applications.
