WHOI Gets $1M Grant for 3D Underwater Telescope

posted by Walt Perkins - 

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is on the receiving end of a $1 million grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation. The funds will go towards the development and use of a 3D acoustic telescope, a first-of-its-kind apparatus that will be used to listen to ocean activity and relaying the audio in real-time to scientists.

The Keck Foundation is a California-based organization that funds endeavors that are distinctive and novel in their approach.

 A prototype is expected to be in place before the end of 2020.
