  3. Development of an in situ total carbonate ion detector for marine use

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 825

    Increasing atmospheric CO2 from anthropogenic sources is changing the chemistry of the oceans and altering the marine food web and the health of :isheries. NOAA’s National Ocean Service is responsible for maintaining the health of coastal regions to preserve :isheries. The ability to monitor the impact of increasing CO2 on marine organisms is crucial to this responsibility. NOAA’s call for aut ...

  6. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...
