SonTek is offering a free, one-day workshop on Tuesday, February 28th 2017, focusing on velocity, hydrographic and water quality data collection "best practices" as it relates to environmental research and monitoring used in oceanographic, hydrographic and climate research markets.

This will be a full day, chock-full of information relevant to environmental monitoring and water management. Application Engineers representing SonTek, YSI and YSI Integrated Systems and Services will hold both a classroom discussion and field demonstration on the latest in acoustic Doppler instrumentation and data collection techniques. All knowledge levels are welcome.

Space and registration is limited and we expect to reach capacity, so we highly recommend that if you would like to attend, please complete the registration form below as soon as possible. We will close registration by Wednesday, February 22nd. Materials, refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Finally, because we would like to provide this opportunity to as many folks as possible, please register only if you are committed to attend (thank you!)
