Let's to introduce Miss Joanna Smart, a 23 yo lady from Tasmania with a background in Marine and Antarctic science. She has been awarded the #AustralasianRolexScholarship as part of the OurWorldUnderwaterScholarshipSociety .
She will play a key role in helping us during the following weeks with the data gathering, the general maintenance of the habitat plus an environmental impact analysis of the uw habitat on the surrounding marine area.
Check here to give her a warm welcome.
END OF THE SUMMER HARVEST PARTY!
We are almost at the end of another incredible Summer at the Nemo's Garden habitat. You can follow the underwater operations for the annual harvest party LIVE directly on this page. Stay tuned - September 14th between 10 AM-1PM(Italian time).
Stable temperature and high humidity seem to be the perfect conditions to make Orchids bloom again, even underwater!
Check here to check these awesome blossoms.
Warm water and great visibility make the underwater habitat even more enjoyable. Sit back and explore the Nemo's Garden habitat through this link .
The surface beneath the surface.
"Thanks to the nearly stable temperature of the water throughout the day, and the thermal excursion occurring inside the biosphere between night and day, the seawater inside the biosphere can evaporate and condense on the internal surfaces of biosphere (cooler than the air). In this way fresh water is formed and it can be gathered and used for the growth of the plants (minerals are added to the fresh water collected which, after the evaporation-condensation process, does not contain any minerals)".

BIOSPHERES

The structure

Our underwater farm is composed of 6 air-filled clear plastic pods, anchored to the bottom of the sea by ropes, chains and weights screws, just off the coast of Noli, Italy.
These acrylic structures, resembling large balloons, float at different depths, between 15 and 36 feet below the surface of the water.

The science
behind

Agriculture represents 70% of freshwater use worldwide: water management is needed in most regions of the world where rainfall is insufficient or variable. Increasing pressure is being placed on water resources by industry and urban areas, meaning that water scarcity is increasing and agriculture is facing the challenge of producing food with reduced water resources.
