Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Equinox has partnered with Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas in an initiative to monitor ocean circulation dynamics and assess oceanic and atmospheric conditions, the Royal Caribbean blog reported on May 13.
The data gathered by both cruise lines is turned over to the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science for analysis. Included in the list of things that the scientists record are ocean temperature, ocean surface properties, salinity, and chlorophyll concentration. They also monitor meteorological data. Understanding and comparing this data will make it easier for scientists to forecast climate change effects on marine life and habitats like coral reefs.
Cruises are popular with families in the United States as a convenient way to experience fun and travel on a vacation. However, cruises also expose passengers to injuries they may not be able to treat as well on site.
