在深海上进行研究的挑战之一是在那里抵消并保持足够长的费用(即,需要船只,ROV和潜艇)。周围的一种方式是让底部的传感器留在底部以收集数据,即使没有人在一起。但是,那么你遇到了电源问题–can’恰好用完了,每隔几周改变电池。解决方案?微生物燃料电池。 克莱尔驯鹿’s group at OSU 一直在研究海底燃料电池,用于利用天然存在的细菌和地球化学来为深海传感器产生电力。然而,像研究生一样,微生物在贿赂食物时最佳…深海沉积物可以用有机物储存,限制了静止燃料电池可以起作用的时间。 来自宾夕法尼亚州的Bruce Logan 最近完成了一些实验,其中燃料电池阳极用营养细菌咀嚼填充,以鼓励微生物劳动力。 Doritos的深海微生物相当于什么?几丁质。由于甲壳素以甲壳类动物壳的形式普遍,因此有许多能够消化它的天然存在的细菌。实验表明,几丁质比纤维素更有效‘booster’用于微生物电池。在你的脸上,Energizer Bunny!

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

    当贿赂啤酒时,它们更好地工作。 :-)
