Sea – Air interface caracterization by a new smart multi instrumented device


CERSAT develop a new device for sea/air interface investigation. MAREE is in charge of tests, qualification and operation checks.

A better knowledge of exchanges between air and sea water are important to understand climate change. Oceanographic surveys and traditional instrumentation are expensive. That’s why this easy to deploy – cheap – tiny device was developed.

This innovative instrument acquires autonomously parameters to study small size waves features.

Embedded ultrasonic sensors have been added to study void fractions under the surface (bubbles) and droplets upper the interface.

This work is a major stage in acoustic R&D studies completed by MAREE for CERSAT.
