The CTD does not allow an internal calibration, but we do a calibration in the lab with conductivity standards and apply the calibrated data as a calculated variable.

This is maybe semantics, but the Mayfly wouldn’t be a source of quality (or the lack thereof). That’s the sensor’s job. CTDs are usually pretty durable.
