bucket thermometer

A water-temperature thermometer provided with an insulated container around the bulb.

It is lowered into the sea on a line until it has had time to reach the temperature of the surface water, then withdrawn and read. The insulated water surrounding the bulb preserves the water reading and is also available as a salinity sample.
