Ocean analytics that boost efficiency, safety, and sustainability

environmental monitoring

Awareness of the ocean environment is essential to the prosperity and sustainability of the Blue Economy, which the OECD predicts will add 3 Trillion USD of value to the world economy by 2030.

  • Temperature plays a crucial role in the functioning of marine life, including metabolism, growth, and reproduction. Marine species often have a narrow temperature range within which they can thrive, and even small differences in water temperature can be significant.
  • Salinity is an important property of the biogeochemistry of natural waters and determines which species inhabit a given area.
  • Ocean current data enables the study of marine debris and climate change, and to improving the efficiency of ocean freight.
  • Phytoplankton produce up to half the oxygen we breathe, sequester vast amounts of carbon, and are the base of the ocean food web.

Amentum Scientific offers an analytics service based on remote-sensing, predictive models, and in-situ measurements of these properties. The insights can alert aquaculture operators, fisheries, shipping, offshore infrastructure, and environmental agencies to changes in ocean properties, informing better decision making.
