Last month, Sequoia sent out a survey to aid in our development of the LISST-RTSSV. Survey participants were entered in a drawing for $100, and our two winners were Benjamin Geldart and David Felix. Thank you for providing us crucial feedback as we continue to innovate in 2020!
The proposed LISST-RTSSV (Real-Time Size and Settling Velocity) will measure sediment size, settling velocity and concentration within the sediment plumes in real-time. This will be of direct use to deep-sea mining companies and regulatory agencies: providing baseline environmental data prior to mining operations, and subsequently underpinning environmental monitoring and modeling of these operations. The LISST-RTSSV is also expected to see widespread use within the offshore oil and gas industry, dredging industry, and sediment research
