Acoustic Doppler Aquatic Animal Monitoring (ADAAM) project A Discussion with Greg Trowse
The Acoustic Doppler Aquatic Animal Monitoring (ADAAM) project is advancing research led by Dr. Len Zedel of Memorial University with the support of Nova Scotia firm Luna Ocean. Greg Trowse of Luna Ocean took some time recently to respond to a few questions, sharing details of his collaboration with Dr. Zedel, talking about the importance of this work and what he hopes to achieve moving forward.
Because there’s not yet a standardized, optimal way of extracting power from tidal currents, many tidal industry technologies are currently being tested around the world. The Testing of a New Turbine Blade Design and Blade Materials project used Canada’s largest university aquatic research facility – Dalhousie University’s Aquatron – to demonstrate the potential of a new hydrokinetic tidal turbine design.

Time spent as a child on the beaches of his home province instilled in Chris Sangster a natural curiosity about his surroundings. “My interest in geology began when I was quite young,” he says. “My parents and I spent a lot of time exploring the beaches around Nova Scotia and collecting interesting rocks and sometimes fossils which we would come across.”
