NOAA’s Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) conducted a 3-month field study comparing radar-based water level sensors. They found that the Miros RangeFinder is the optimal choice for wave measurements.
Earlier in the year we announced our collaboration with Katapult Ocean. As part of their accelerator program Miros is mentoring Undersee, a startup who monitor water quality. We sat down with COO, Tiago Cristóvão, to talk aquaculture, climate change and reliable data.
Miros is using a RangeFinder to measure the height, length and period of the waves at Flaskebekk, a small community on the water’s edge, deep within the Oslofjord. We hope to contribute to a better understanding of the “mini-tsunamis” occurring there, what causes them, and their potential impacts.
The launch of Miros’ most recent innovation, Miros Speed Through Water, hails a new era for marine efficiency. We sat down with Senior Sensor Development Manager, Rune Gangeskar, to explore what makes the technology tick and how it is being applied to real-world scenarios.
Miros unveils Speed Through Water by Wavex. Delivering highly accurate data without the need for any submerged equipment, and with better accuracy than traditional instrumentation.
Wavex provides directional wave spectra and wave parameters based on digitised X-band radar ocean surface images with no need for calibration using external references.
Miros’ Wavex facilitates real-time monitoring of ocean surface currents from moving vessels, without the use of equipment immersed in water.
Cathrine Netland Egset is Miros’ Senior Oceanographer. We asked her 10 quick-fire questions about oceanography, her role at Miros, and what inspires her in her work.
Biofouling is the build-up of microorganisms, plants, algae, or animals on wetted surfaces. It can be an incredibly expensive and inconvenient issue to tackle.
Wave buoys have been essential in providing accurate ocean surface measurement since the middle of last century. The costs associated with maintaining them, though, can be astronomical. Dry sensors provide a solution to this expensive, and potentially hazardous, problem.
