BOSS Bio-Optical Sensor System
The Bio-Optical Sensor System (BOSS) is an integrated suite of instruments developed for deployment on profiling float arrays to observe biogeochemical parameters at global scales. The BOSS is a flexible package that expands the sensor capability of profiling floats by providing multispectral radiometry, scattering, beam attenuation, chlorophyll, and CDOM measurements to complement the standard suite of parameters that includes temperature, salinity and oxygen.
