  • My partner says the difference is incredible! My partner has probably punched me a hundred times to get me to roll over and stop snoring. I have been using your techniques recently and now my partner has told me that the difference is incredible. But what has amazed me the most is how much better and more energetic I now feel after a good night's sleep! Thank you so much! ♥♥♥ https://bit.ly/37PhtTN

  14. The challenge is trying to do as much as we can to help people make sensible decisions. Having more ocean observations is critical to good science and providing a comprehensive view of what is happening, and how things are changing. This will build our ability to understand the ocean, and to make wiser decisions and policies in the future. - Oscar Pizarro, Principal Investigator
  15. Collected more than 500,000 georeferenced images along the the 'Au'Au Channel covering 77,453 m2 of seafloor LRAUVs sample to depths of 300 m LRAUVs sample to depths of 1,000 km

  18. CLOUD DATA ANALYTICS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND ACCELERATE MARINE SCIENCE
  19. It is amazing to see large areas of the seafloor mapped only days after the raw data was collected. It is not just the size of the map, but the way we used it to inform our on-site decisions. This makes a real difference as the technology allows us to visualize wide areas at high resolution, and select where we should collect data. This has not previously been possible. - Blair Thornton, Principal Investigator
  20. TECHNICAL INNOVATION SCALING UP MARINE CONSERVATION WITH
  21. We are taking the latest and greatest technologies and using it to understand the relationships among the geology, chemistry, and the animal life. - Peter Girguis, Principal Investigator
