Technologies for Ocean Sensing

Project description

Innovative ocean observation technologies

The pollution of our oceans with plastics and other anthropogenic waste represents a threat to human activities such as fisheries and aquaculture. As a consequence, advanced ocean observation technologies are urgently needed. The EU-funded TechOceanS project will develop and demonstrate through several underwater vehicles nine pioneering technologies for ocean biology, chemistry and plastics monitoring. The novel solutions comprise five sensors, two imaging systems targeting seabed and pelagic biology and plastics, a sampler that will collect 1 000 particle samples and a new AI-based image processing method for data compression and information transmission. An in situ analyser for nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and lab-on-a-chip sensors will quantify species and genes and sense nutrients, carbonate essential ocean variables, organic contaminants and toxins as well as microorganisms and microplastics.
