Welcoming @KCM487 as a new member of the Bristlemouth Pioneer Program

Please join us in congratulating @KCM487 of WHOI! We look forward to learning more about your project.

We aim to build multiple low-cost Sargassum trackers and deploy them on a 2024 cruise in the Great Sargassum Belt, enabling us the opportunity to

  1. Test our integrated low-cost chemical sensing drifters and
  2. Provide the first in situ chemical data from these floats.
    This opportunity will enable us to gain greater insight into the impacts of Sargassum on the surrounding sea water. We aim to integrate Bristlemouth technology with our low cost chemical sensing sensors and tracking system for this deployment.

Super interested to learn more about this. What a cool project!

I’m hoping that a lot of other folks will be interested in joining team Sargassum!
