AbstractThe low cost moored system KdUINO [1] allows to measure the diffuse attenuation coefficient parameter, related to the water transparency. The KdUINO has been designed as a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) instrument: it is very easy to build and can be made at home. Its total cost is less than 200 Euros. Due to its low cost, researchers can use a lot of them for the price of one conventional oceanographic instrument. For this reason, the KdUINO is a perfect device to make spatio-temporal studies in costal zones. This instruments increments the marine citizen science community. There is already a small community that makes these instruments and measures data in a coastal area of Catalonia, Spain. In this contribution, we demonstrate the great potential of this instrument by analyzing changes in the diffuse attenuation coefficient during several days in a coastal area of Catalonia.
