Abstract : The present invention relates generally to apparatus for measuring conductivity and, more particularly, to an improved conductivity sensing cell and control circuit for providing highly precise measurements at a relatively high data rate. Surveys made with existing oceanographic instruments have revealed the presence of pressure, temperature and salinity variations in the ocean that are much finer than those anticipated. To investigate these microstructures, extremely accurate temperature, pressure and conductivity measurements must be made.
