Scientists lay cables on sea bed - Network Cables

A team of scientists from the US has laid a series of network cables across the sea bed to link sensors and instruments, it has been reported.

Scientists and engineers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute at Moss Landing have laid 32 miles of underwater cabling across the bottom of the bay to connect the instruments, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

An internet connection was also installed to transmit data to experts at UC Berkeley and the University of Washington in Seattle.

The scientists placed a seismometer and sonar device to determine information related to earthquakes and signals sent by marine animals respectively.

Steve Etchemendy, marine operations director for the institute, told the newspaper the project was a "test bed".

He added: "We want to see what instruments work best, which should become permanent for other observatories on the seabed, and which are needed most by the researchers."

Network cabling firm OFS recently announced the commercial release of its EX-Bend cables, following successful trials with independent carriers across the globe.
