Monitoring ocean health with pH sensors (text and video)

Xylem Sustainability Report Spotlight

Rising levels of atmospheric carbon are resulting in higher ocean acidity, which can have profound negative effects on the health of ocean plant and animal life. This year, we participated in the prestigious Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE, a competition that invites scientists, engineers and innovators from around the globe to improve our understanding of how CO2 emissions are affecting ocean acidification, and to develop a new pH-sensing platform that can help begin the process of healing our oceans. Our innovative solution uses sophisticated optical sensors as well as calibration and validation systems to provide critical data to better understand this threat to our oceans.
