National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, awarded new CastAway-CTDYSI, Inc. has presented a brand new CastAway-CTD to a researcher and academic expert representing the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, United Kingdom.

Dr. Simon Boxall accepted the CastAway during a brief presentation held August, 2010. It is the first of two systems that were part of a special giveaway drawing, held earlier this year during Oceanology International 2010 (Oi10), London.

Boxall's CastAway was among the first official batch of new systems shipped to dozens of customers.

YSI European Regional Manager, Darren Hanson, was on hand for the official presentation and said Dr. Boxall is looking forward to using the CastAway in wider teaching applications.

"He was very excited by the Castaway and believes that this is a fantastic verification tool for CTD work," said Hanson.

Hanson said Boxall will be using the CastAway during an upcoming survey of the Arctic. He plans to collect data down to 100m and is looking forward to sending photos and data to YSI.

The second CastAway-CTD winner was Dr. Keri Page of the Scottish Marine Institute, Association of Marine Scientist.
