CAASE project

Coupled animal and artificial sensing for sutainable ecosystems (CAASE) : The Red Sea as a CAASE Study


‚ÄčThe project aims to develop a revolutionary approach to animal-borne sensing technology that will be coupled with evolving artificial platforms to observe and monitor the marine environment and its inhabitants in a ground-breaking manner. We will capitalize on millions of years of evolution of sensory perception and reaction by animals in the marine environment, using breakthroughs in sensor and tag technology, to transform the way the ocean is observed, understood and ultimately managed. It is a big project including PIs from KAUST (led by Prof. Carlos Duarte) and from  MIT (USA); AIMS (Australia); CSIC (Spain); UCLA (USA); Swansea Univ (UK).
