SEA CURRENTS MONITORING PROJECT

With the collaboration of the Costa Rican Maritime Engineering Laboratory (IMARES), Innoceana began monitoring marine currents at the southern tip of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. This project has never been carried out in this area before and will serve to improve plastics disposal strategies or understand the flow of nutrients in the area, parameters directly related to the behavior of marine ecosystems.

WEATHER & AIR QUALITY STATION IN ISLA DEL CAÑO

This is the second meteorological station that Innoceana has designed and installed in collaboration with the UPM Maritime Engineering Laboratory. The stations are in locations where meteorological data has not been taken before and therefore it is unknown parameters of classical meteorology or environmental quality. Thanks to this station, Isla del Caño will be able to relate phenomena observed during the years, such as humpback whale migrations, with meteorological parameters as well as generate an initial database of air quality in the area.

WATER QUALITY ELEMENTS IN ISLA DEL CAÑO

This project knows no borders and is generating water quality data in the South Pacific of Costa Rica, on Caño Island and nearby rivers such as Sierpe and Térraba that sometimes carry nutrients from nearby plantations. The rangers of Caño Island have learned our protocol and the importance of water quality and are collecting data, too!

3D CORAL REEF MODELLING

The essence of Innoceana is innovation and this project reflects our ambition to unite technology, innovation and conservation. Generating a 3D model of a coral reef is  available to the user and conveys very valuable information to monitor changes in the status of these threatened animals and to establish effective conservation strategies.

2D GIS MAPPING

Georeferencing information is a focus of Innoceana since environmental parameters cannot be understood without knowing their location. Innoceana has generated two-dimensional maps of some of the main ecosystems of Caño Island.

PLASTIC MONITORING

Every time a member of the Innoceana team jumps into the water, we take data from the plastics found during the dive and take them out of the water to be characterized. We’ve found a lot of plastics around the Island, especially during the rainy season. Additionally, we’ve recorded two refrigerators floating between the Island and Corcovado and a drum full of gasoline!
