SubC Imaging, a global leader in innovative subsea cameras and solutions, is thrilled to announce a new partnership with The Scripps Corporate Alliance (SCA), a division of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego.
The Scripps mission is to seek, teach, and communicate understanding of the oceans, atmosphere, Earth, and other planets for the benefit of society and the environment. They are one of the oldest, largest, and most important centres for global ocean and earth science research and education in the world. Scripps is a community of over 2,000 students, scientists, staff, and volunteers who conduct research in every ocean, generating over 700 publications.
Our new partnership with SCA will allow us to build new working relationships with Scripps students, scientists, and unique research facilities. Working directly with clients, we have developed purpose-built products to assist researchers around the world in gaining new marine science insights.
During their research into the abyssal megafauna in the eastern Clarion-Clipperton Zone, the University of Hawaii used a SubC Imaging camera at four different sites and were the first to gain insights and make estimates of abundance and diversity of megafauna. To read more about this publication, see references below.
Our new collaboration with Scripps will give us the opportunity to continually refine and upgrade our camera systems so they continue to be on the leading edge of subsea imaging technology. These subsea innovations also reduce research project complexity and provide enhanced return on investment in terms of both time and cost.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements and collaborations with Scripps Institution of Oceanography, US San Diego!
