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.

TPO's Tiffany House Visits GLERL and Comes Away Wowed

TPO's Tiffany House Visits GLERL and Comes Away Wowed

Mentoring Visit to GLERL Offers a Wealth of Learning Opportunities

Tiffany House, NOAA SBIR, had the opportunity to shadow her mentor through the OAR Mentoring Program and deliver a briefing on the SBIR Program to GLERL, one of seven Federal research laboratories in the OAR line office of NOAA. She had fun learning about the advanced tools and technology GLERL uses and shares with the world, listening to leaders in science talk about their research with so much passion, and she was proud to share with them the great things the NOAA SBIR does for small businesses.
