The CTD is an amazing instrument that has allowed oceanographers to explore the ocean interior. By measuring only three variables: conductivity, temperature and pressure; scientists have gained vast amounts of knowledge about the world’s oceans by examining its structure, its currents, the interleaving of water masses and even the crests and troughs of passing waves. 

There is an Crowd sourced Project trying to reduce the costs for such a device. Support it:
