Designing effective instruments is a key component of oceanographic studies. The SUSTAIN Laboratory enables efficient testing of various sensors while maintaining control of the environmental conditions.

A variety of instruments and observational techniques have been developed in SUSTAIN in order to capture specific physical processes, including shadowgraphy for imaging of bubbles under breaking waves, high speed side-camera imaging of wave growth and breaking, and custom vertical wind profilers.
