Quantitative vs Qualitative
Developing advanced sensors that can reliably collect and report ‘open source’ datasets is critical to providing immutable quantitative data for analysis of environmental and marine life patterns. MSF emphasizes quantitative over qualitative analysis, which we anticipate will enable a more proactive and predictive posture for marine conservation. Our goal is to collect data with the smallest interference in the ecosystem as possible.

Persistent Remote Sensing
Water quality sampling throughout many watersheds is performed in a variety of methods, and often is not continuous. Data currently collected represents point sampling, which does not allow for complete monitoring. Even data that has been collected at 15-minute intervals is typically collected over short time periods or in a limited number of locations, yielding small data sets. By sampling at 15-minute intervals on a 24/7 basis we expect to be able to capture the impact of fleeting events, such as rain deluges or moving turbidity plumes, and define effects of cyclical variations.
