The Ocean and Climate Innovation Accelerator (OCIA) has awarded its first wave of projects to develop a more precise understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change.
Launched in 2021 by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), OCIA is designed to bring together organizations from various disciplines and areas of research expertise to accelerate ocean-based solutions for climate change.
Among the projects awarded include a fleet of high-tech mini-labs for chemistry experiments are great depths, a water vapor-filtering device combined with a “smart camera” to illustrate how carbon dioxide exchanges between the air and sea, and sensors for gathering real-time information about environmental conditions in shellfish habitats.
