Networked Sensors Monitor Ocean Health
The Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) is an array of connected technologies developed by Australian climate and ocean scientists to monitor nearly one-third of the world's oceans. The network employs sensor floats and underwater autonomous vehicles, combined with sensor tagged animals, moored scientific stations and remote satellite sensing to gather real time information about water temperature and salinity.
Data is used to study the effects on marine health given changing conditions, at a scale that previously was not possible.
Data is free online.
