The CB-25-SVS Wave Buoy by NexSens Technology offers the latest in real-time wave observations in a compact, affordable, and easy to deploy platform. At 18” hull diameter and less than 30 lb. (13.6kg) weight, it can be used for drifting, tethering or mooring applications. The buoy accurately measures wave height, period, direction, and more using SeaView Systems’ industry-leading SVS-603HR sensor, relied upon in buoy networks by NOAA and many others throughout the world. External sensor ports with wet-mate connectors support GPS, meteorological, and water quality sensors for maximum flexibility.

The buoy is constructed of an inner core of cross-linked polyethylene foam with a tough polyurea skin. A rechargeable battery with integrated solar panels power the wave buoy continuously, and all electronics are housed in a quick-removable waterproof package with wet-mate connectors. Three 1.5” pass-through holes facilitate cable routing of underwater sensors.

Available with integrated cellular or Iridium satellite communications, the CB-25-SVS Wave Buoy sends data in real-time to the cloud-based WQData LIVE datacenter. In the Basic tier, this free service allows users to securely access and analyze data, as well as share data through an auto-report. Subscription-based tiers of WQData LIVE are also available for generating custom alarms, exporting data through an API or custom NDBC/GLOS formats, and providing a publicly-accessible version of the project website.

Monitoring Buoy Supports Nautical Archaeology

For as long as humans have inhabited Europe’s Atlantic coast, the ocean has been a great source of wonder and mystery. History is full of fascinating tales of epic endeavors, new discoveries of fearless explorers, fishing communities inextricably linked to the bounties of the sea, cultural interactions both peaceful and not, and voyages that went awry during monumental storms or simply due to bad luck. In the south of Spain, at the boundary between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, one such tale involves a long-lost merchant ship that went undiscovered from the 16th century until 1984. Believed to be carrying valuable goods from Italy, it sank just across from Gibraltar in the Algeciras Bay at a point called La Ballenera.

Staying Within Budget: Carbon Planning

While we usually concern ourselves with budgeting money or time, we should be thinking about another type of budget: the carbon budget. The carbon budget refers to the amount of carbon exchange, especially carbon dioxide, allotted on an annual basis to prevent the earth from reaching an increase of 2-degrees Celsius all over the globe. If a 2 degree increase does occur, global warming effects are expected to be catastrophic and irreversible. In order to know how close we are to reaching the carbon budget, an extensive knowledge of types of carbon input and their magnitudes, as well as their fluctuations over time, is needed.

IoT for Smarter Aquaculture

With aquaculture booming, IoT may be the future of the market. Fish have been farmed for millennia but only recently has the industry achieved such a vast scale. As overexploitation and climate change threaten wild fish stocks, aquaculture is increasingly framed as an alternative that can provide a low-carbon, healthy protein source. But, as the global population grows, the industry has the monumental task of meeting the increasing demand for seafood. In order to provide higher yields economically and sustainably, it is turning to the Internet of Things, or IoT. IoT refers to technology that pulls data from smart sensors to the Cloud and crunches it using analytic software tools, including artificial intelligence (AI), to monitor and improve efficiency or productivity.
