Man Overboard Rescue Device Developed by NOAA

Man Overboard Rescue Device Developed by NOAA

Device enables limited crew to rescue unresponsive victims

Recovering an unresponsive person in the water and bringing them aboard a vessel has been a longstanding problem in marine safety and training. Until now. A new invention from the Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Milford Laboratory looks like a practical and effective tool for saving lives at sea.

Novel, Inexpensive Temperature Sensor Unlocks Coral Monitoring Challenge

Novel, Inexpensive Temperature Sensor Unlocks Coral Monitoring Challenge

Novel design and minimal cost propel interest in global deployment at reefs.

Warm ocean water can be a killer for coral reefs, and AOML recently developed a new inexpensive sensor to drastically improve our ability to measure and monitor changing temperatures on reefs at an unprecedented scale.  The low cost sea temperature sensor, known as InSituSea, costs roughly $10 in parts to produce while providing high accuracy (0.05-0.1 C) in measurement. With a production cost that is 10% of an off-the-shelf temperature sensor, colleagues have expressed strong interest in deploying the InSituSea sea temperature sensor at coral reefs around the world.

Robot Sailboats Scour the Oceans for Data

Robot Sailboats Scour the Oceans for Data

Last summer, working with scientists and engineers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the boats skimmed along the edge of the retreating Arctic ice cap, giving scientists a detailed account of temperature, salinity and ecosystem information that would have been difficult and expensive to obtain in person.
