ESP Revealed

This is Clair, our new Environmental Sample Processor (ESP). She is a field-deployable system – developed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) and commercialized by Spyglass – that will be used to collect water samples from the Columbia River estuary, concentrate microorganisms or other particles of interest, analyze them using molecular techniques, and transmit the results. We are working on a story about how CMOP plans to use modeling to decide when the ESP should take samples.

In the meantime, here is a photo of Spyglass Chief Information Architect, Paul Janecek and CMOP scientists, Mariya Smit, Charles Seaton, and Vena Hayes going over the functionality of the ESP.
