Scientists to develop deep ocean seismic network
San Diego: The Scripps Institution of Oceanography has been awarded a $1 million grant to develop a deep sea seismic network.



Scientists hope this new system will plug current monitoring gaps.



Ships typically deploy earthquake sensors in the ocean that gather data for a certain amount of time before they are retrieved by vessels.
Scripps will pair with industry in the project that`s being funded by the National Science Foundation. Data from the sea floor sensors will be transmitted to a surfboard-sized autonomous unmanned vessel on the ocean`s surface, and then to shore via satellite.Researchers say the unmanned vessel would be able to stay stationary for longer periods of time, allowing for more data collection.
