Biological Oxygen Demand as an indicator of the metabolic state of an organism, is of particular interest in many oceanographic studies, and can benefit from in situ measurement. PHORCYS is a semi-autonomous submersible sensor system which passively samples the water column in situ. The sensor performs real time, direct oxygen consumption measurements for quick turn-around.
