GRIL echosounding system available for rental
Contact: Chantal Fournier (UQTR)

The echosounding system consists of four main components, each with their specific function. The DGPS system allows geographic coordinates to be acquired with great precision. The transducer makes it possible to record echograms that are then translated into measurements of plant height and cover, while the video camera system records underwater images of the plants. Finally, the field computer enables data visualization and recording.

Rental fees:

  • $20 / day
  • $100 / week
  • $150 / 2 weeks
