Seagrass, Maërl beds and Reef habitats
The surge in offshore wind projects will necessitate increased monitoring of geogenic and biogenic reef habitats. MERC believes that there is an opportunity for further collaboration with Cathx Ocean, especially with the evolving requirements in environmental monitoring. MERC will continue to explore the deployment of new sensors to enhance their data capture capabilities.
MERC’s partnership with Cathx Ocean Imaging System has proven to be a game-changer in their underwater imaging endeavours. The collaboration has not only solved their immediate challenges but has also positioned them well for future environmental monitoring projects. The case exemplifies how the right technology, when aligned with specific user needs, can yield unparalleled results.
