Success in Chagos!

Team Chagos, composed of scientists from our very own TRCC, Australia and the UK have completed their deployments of new Vemco receivers and Wildlife Computers satellite tags.

Today we have completed the installation of a network of underwater receivers that will provide both real time updates and the capacity to monitor this - the largest Marine Protected Coral Reef Atoll in the world. Our "Wired Ocean" concept is now allowing the international team to follow the reef ecosystem in real time, and over the next decade.  The first ocean observation devices have also been installed providing oxygen and temperature measurements that should enable initiation of long term climate data.

Thanks to our the crew and the scientists, along with the Bertarelli Foundation and Rolex, for helping to make this transfer of technology happen!
