Sub-Surface Automated Dual Water Sampler (SAS)

NOAA-Designed Hands On Learning Tool for Students and Scientists

The sub-surface automated dual water sampler (SAS) was designed by researchers at NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) and the University of Miami to help scientists study water chemistry on shallow reef habitats. Explore the SAS website, use it to guide you in building and using your own water samplers, embrace the maker movement and improve on our design. If you are a teacher, there are free lesson plans to download that include labs and activities related to science, technology, and engineering. Enjoy this site and please use the SAS to learn about and explore our oceans!

Science on a Sphere Mobile Application

SOS Explorer Now Available for iOS and Android

SOS Explorer™ (SOSx) is a flat screen version of the widely popular Science On a Sphere® (SOS). The revolutionary software takes SOS datasets, usually only seen on a 6-foot sphere in large museum spaces, and makes them more accessible. The visualizations show information provided by satellites, ground observations and computer models. There are two versions available. SOS Explorer is an exhibit-quality version and SOS Explorer Mobile is a free introductory version.

NOAA-Funded Coral Instrument Leads to Start-Up

CISME Instruments, LLC to Sell Commercial Instrument for Coral and Benthic Studies

CISME was developed by Drs. Alina M. Szmant and Robert F. Whitehead at the University of North Carolina Wilmington Center for Marine Science with funding from NOAA OER Grant NA09OAR4320073. The team is in the process of commercializing the Coral In Situ Metabolism INstrument or CISME (pronounced Kiss-Me). The start up has a set of instruments available for testing by trained and qualified research divers who are willing to collaborate and provide the company their feedback. A few “early adopter” units are also available for sale.
Man Overboard Recovery Device (U.S. Patent Pending)

Man Overboard Recovery Device (U.S. Patent Pending)

NOAA device allows assisted rescue of incapacitated crew

The NOAA Man Overboard Device allows a single rescuer to attach a lifting harness to an unresponsive victim who is unable to assist in their own rescue.  That is the most significant advantage that our device has over existing rescue devices. Our device does not require the rescuer to enter the water to assist the victim. I feel that any vessel equipped with both a Life Sling and our device can recover an MOB in almost any situation.
