Healing our oceans.
The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE was a $2 million global competition that challenged teams of engineers, scientists and innovators from all over the world to create pH sensor technology that could affordably, accurately and efficiently measure ocean chemistry from its shallowest waters to its deepest depths.
The Grand Challenge
While ocean acidification is well documented in a few temperate ocean waters, little is known in high latitudes, coastal areas and the deep sea, and most current pH sensor technologies are too costly, imprecise, or unstable to allow for sufficient knowledge on the state of ocean acidification.
