Breakthrough sheds light on unseen ocean depths
The UK’s National Oceanography Centre has revealed new sensor technology that will open up the ocean depths in ways we haven’t managed before.
The BORAbox will initially focus on monitoring crucial parameters such as temperature, salinity, depth, and the carbonate system. These measurements are vital for assessing the overall health of the oceans. The data collected will be analysed by scientists and used to support further ocean observation studies, as well as shape comprehensive global assessments of ocean health. As the project expands with additional launches in various locations, new data will represent a significant advance on currently available information, which is often limited in scope and outdated by the time it becomes accessible.
