AM Ocean Technology and Engineering Overview
Convenor: Prof. Matthew Mowlem
11.00 am - 2.00 pm (including Lunch)
Sensor technology is central to the current and future success of marine measurement systems. Whilst physical sensing, imaging and acoustics are mature, measurement of subsurface biology and chemistry with sensors remains challenging. This session will explore recent advances in chemical and biological sensor technology including the development of Lab on chip (LOC) sensors and their application to autonomous platforms (such as gliders, and fixed observatories). Some of these technologies are now sufficiently mature that they are poised for commercialisation.
