Seaquester, Inc.


2 Carleton Drive West
East Sandwich, Massachusetts 02537

Organization's Description:

Seaquester is a private, independent, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation organized in Massachusetts and dedicated to advancing research, technology and education for the safe, stable, and long-term sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide in the deep ocean by controlled fertilization, as well as the restoration and maintenance of open ocean seafood stocks. Seaquester is committed to fostering discussions on the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of such approaches to mitigating the effects of anthropgenic climate change and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society.

We hope to deliver a completely novel technical capability for oceanographic research broadly through the evolution of our Autonomous Transient Ocean Event Monitoring platform, ATOEM.

The ATOEM (Autonomous Transient Ocean Event Monitoring) platform is a fully autonomous, diesel-electric submarine “mothership” capable of launch, recovery and support of a contingent of smaller AUVs. Global deployment of a large fleet of modular, low-cost, highly manufacturable ATOEM platforms has the potential to transform oceanographic research by providing coordinated, comprehensive, time-series, spatiotemporal measurements of all key ocean properties on an unprecedented scale, while exploiting increasing levels of Science Autonomy.
