Marine Renewable Energy Ireland MaREI is a marine and energy-based research, development and innovation hub based in Ireland. MaREI combines the expertise of a wide range of research groups and industry partners, with the shared mission of solving the main scientific, technical and socio-economic challenges across the marine and energy spaces.
The Marine Institute (MI) is the State agency responsible for marine research, technology development and innovation in Ireland.
DROPLET is an easy-to-use interactive web application for exploring information about projects and infrastructure which have been funded in Ireland on Water Research. DROPLET has been developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) but includes projects and infrastructure from many other many other funders of environmental research in Ireland.
iMARL, the “Insitu Marine Laboratory for Geosystems Research”, is a network of various types of ocean floor located sensors, hosted by the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS). It comprises broadband Ocean Bottom Seismographs (OBS), broadband acoustic sensors, and sensors for measuring absolute water pressure & temperature at the ocean floor. A system capable of detecting tsunamis also forms part of the infrastructure. The sensor pool is largely mobile and can, in principle, be deployed around the world. However the current focus is on the NE Atlantic, offshore Ireland. One instrument will be fixed and will ultimately become a real-time sensing offshore element of the Irish National Seismic Network (www.insn.ie)
