Case Study Description

OceanCube Observatories, composed of a group of researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, are using PME’s T-Chain sensors as a part of their instrumentation package located on the sea floor off the coast of Japan. The OceanCubes are marine observatories located in areas where upwelling of cold, nutrient rich and hypoxic water is expected on a seasonal basis. PME’s T-Chain allows for high resolution observation of temperature and PAR within the OceanCube Observatories. All data from the sensors and cameras are streamed back to shore computers for processing and analysis.
