July 30th, 2022 - The Toadfish team is proud to announce the deployment of a new Smart Reef system off the coast of South Carolina. The main objective is data collection to advance modeling for predicting and engineering coastal environments to address issues of sea level rise and flooding; exploring the utility of artificial reefs to potentially be designed to effect coastal beach erosion while also supporting recreational fisheries; and data collection for similar ideas of "living shorelines" like oyster reef restoration projects to help mitigate marsh erosion in estuaries as well as the potentially harmful effects of eutrophication on fisheries.

 

 

"Tomorrow, July 30th, SCUBA Divers led by GLOBAL ECO ADVENTURES, former U.S. military special operators with FORCE BLUE and the Special Forces Association, and officials with the South Carolina Dept. of Natural Resources (SCDNR) among others [see below] will facilitate the near-shore installation of the initial portion of a smart reef system.

In coordination with leading scientists from Coastal Carolina University (CCU), the smart reef dive team will offload modular reef sections (to be equipped with sensor technology for wave motion detection and storm tracking) onto the ocean floor."
