When you think of the word “technology” do you imagine something bulky and old-fashioned like a fax machine or a telephone? You probably don’t. It’s actually much more wonderful than that. It’s full of exciting new technologies that make everyday life better for people everywhere. Here are just five of those “other” technologies that are making lives better right now:
Standardized Mark Chromatography – There are many types of chromatography, but the most common is the standardized mark chromatography (SMC) system. This type of chromatography determines the amount of available substances in a sample by how they are presented through the sample’s column. For example, there are two types of SMC systems: one is called the solid phase chromatography system and the other is the semi-logarithmically ionized phase chromatography system. The standardized mark chromatography system used by the monarch fish has a special part that can be identified by looking at a unique code called a key.
Technology Part 1 – The monarch’s specially designed lifeboat is called a striker suit lifeboat. This specially designed raft allows the crew to keep swimming even when it gets rained on. The strike suit has a pressure sensor on the chest so it can continually stay afloat. The top of this feature has a biofeedback device that monitors the amount of oxygen in the air. This biofeedback device feeds data into computer chips that determine the pressure of the air against the raft and can tell the computer to quit if there’s too much pressure.
Technology Part 2 – This technology makes it possible for the monarch to keep swimming even if there’s not enough oxygen in the ocean. A special buoyancy compensator device allows the fish to maintain its floating weight. This constant buoyancy keeps the animal moving. Some of the other pieces of this technology include an electronic depth finder that allows the divers to easily locate the fish in the ocean bed.
Technology Part 3 – The fish can move from side to side thanks to some high tech gear. A special propeller gives the monarch the ability to propel itself into the air. In order to keep the wings working properly the propellers are attached to the undersides of the wings. A hydroelectric damper on one of the undersides redirects the water away from the wing and back to maintain the constant direction.
Technology Part 4 – The technology allows the monarch to keep swimming even with a full tank of oxygen. The tank of oxygen is kept in a diving cylinder. The cylinder provides a constant supply of air. The diving technology has also been improved in order to allow the monarch to dive deeper.
Technology Part 5 – This technology was the last in line to help the marine wildlife. The underwater video cameras were designed to record everything that happened while the diver was under the water. These cameras are designed to be placed near the top of the water column so that they do not get thrown back into the ocean. The submersible cameras are equipped with a lens that is near the surface so that it can record whatever is going on below the boat.
Diving Technology is using to keep abreast of what is going on beneath the waters. Different types of species have different needs for the right type of food and water conditions. Diving technology helps to keep them healthy. It also keeps the species alive and on the lookout for predators.
Underwater Technology – This type of technology helps to locate animals like fish and reptiles. Geologists are finding new types of animals, dinosaur bones for example, with this technology each day. The depth of the ocean floor is enormous. Finding something or locating it with sonar will take someone to a different world. Diving technology helps to locate and chart the location of things or animals underwater.
Ocean Technology is the term used to describe sonar tracking, laser mapping, and other forms of underwater technology. Marine technology is helping to map the sea floor to find treasure chests, wrecks, and other items buried deep under the water’s surface. This information can lead to successful treasure hunts. Other forms of underwater technology are helping to keep fisheries healthy by keeping the numbers of fish and other animals up.
Technology has been used to make people more comfortable in their environment. It can also keep people safe. Diving equipment and undersea technology are helping to preserve the world for future generations. If we need to go somewhere else to find our resources that can help us keep our planet healthy and a place for our descendants to live on, then we should be doing what we can to make the dive available to everyone.
