  • Soil climate monitoring in Antarctica

    Antarctica, the coldest place on earth, has an area of about 14 million sq. km. About 98% of the continent is covered by ice, which averages about 2100 m thick. This vast ice sheet contains the earth’s largest fresh water reserve. Of the ice-free ground, only 0.3% is available for soils to form. Currently there are seven soil climate stations in Antarctica, which monitor a range of ambient ...

Their technology uses the most efficient electric field pattern for guiding the fish with ...

  • New monitoring network for Scottish ports

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...
