Hydro International is a print and online magazine for hydrographers, oceanographers and other scientists and researchers with an interest in marine and maritime topics.
Project underway: writing an article about the recent marine expedition to deploy eighteen seismometers in the North Atlantic. These devices will descent up to 4000m to install themselves on the seafloor, collecting seismic vibrational data to help scientists understand tsunamis and earthquakes.
In addition to the contribution to tsunami and earthquake research, this project will have creative and educational outcomes due to the collaboration with sound art project Aerial/Sparks as well as the curriculum links with Irish school students.
The article is called ‘Capturing the earth’s heartbeat: K.U.M. and the SEA-SEIS ocean-bottom seismometer deployment mission’ and was published in the mid-December edition of the magazine.
