Robots shellfish study climate change
Shells that you see on the shores of your favorite beaches, can be repeated in laboratory conditions in the same form,but with electronics, this prototype will help to study climate change in the oceans. The research group has published data shellfish robots whose sensors have collected information about temperature in their place in the last 18 years to determine climate change around the world. A robot or a microchip fixed on the shell of the mollusk and allowed the measurement of the body temperature of live mussels every 10-15 minutes, artificial shellfish can track and predict global warming in situations where there is the most visible effect of rising temperatures.
Scallops are shellfish that live only in running and cool at the same time very clean water. The growth of scallops is highly dependent on air temperature and sunlight so that the appropriate objects of respect to the health of this ecosystem is very important for science. If the clams are too hot, then something is wrong in nature.
The results will help scientists and governments around the world to make important decisions relating to climate change, but not only in this direction. The information may help you be preserved whole ecosystems that are under extinction due to various changes in conditions, acidification of water, erosion, and more. In short, these mussels are studying not only the past of our planet, they can form and its future.Shellfish are now being actively bred in different countries of the world and we in the Crimea, in order for them to create the required habitat conditions are robots sensors good service could do if produced on an industrial scale, not only for scientific experiments.
