1.Civil engineering professor proposes the bold concept for solving coral bleaching.
Mo Ehsani, Centennial Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at the University of Arizona, has proposed the innovative solution for the worldwide coral bleaching crisis.
He said that there is an endless supply of cool water just a short distance away, at the bottom of the ocean, and yet the warm water at the shallow reefs is killing the coral.
To solve this, he has come up with idea to manufacture a durable, lightweight, single-piece pipe that is long enough to continually feed cooler water from nearby greater depths to the heat-stressed coral in the shallow water.
He also said that floating Wave Energy Converter (WEC) will use to generate the electricity required to power the pumps needed to maintain constant flow of cool water
