Explore the sea with underwater technology
London: New technology sensors planted five km deep can now enable humans to explore the sea, say researchers.
Researchers have completed tests on an undersea network of sensors that could capture volcanic eruptions on the seabed.
A team using special bots (automated tools) spent three weeks examining the sensors placed off the coast of the Pacific.
They took pictures of the cables and the sensors to make sure the project remains on track, the Daily Mail reports.
Once it is completed, the network will allow scientists to measure changes to the ocean`s chemical, biological, physical and geological processes simultaneously.
The latest tests involved sending a 274-foot research vessel called Thomas G Thompson five km down.
The network has already filmed a volcano that erupted last spring off the coast of Oregon.
