Sensors for LArge scale HydrodynaMic Imaging of ocean floor
The cables can be connecting with existing cabled ocean observatories. The technology is inspired by the biophysics of fish hydrodynamic sensing. The technology is scalable from meters to possibly hundreds of kilometers and allows a high sampling frequency.
LAkHsMI will also develop innovative methods for hydrodynamic imaging. It produces several continuous on-line information products for interdisciplinary oceanography and seismic geophysics but also for other applications including tracking fish and fish schools or (sub)surface traffic in harbours. Software interfaces developed in the course of the project will be integrated with existing observatory systems (such as EUROGOOS). LAkHsMI will design and implement the sensor cables on small large scales. Tests will be conducted in a tank, a pool, an in ocean observatory.
