Coral Shield

In coastal restoration coral ponds, corals are not only susceptible to seawater temperature resulting in their bleaching or death but also affected by sediment cover and heat from direct sunlight. Coral Shield is a machine of sensor-typed sun visor and seawater perturbation, initiated to cool down the pool and reducing the coral bleaching and death due to sediment coverage as the detection data of temperature and water quality reaches some point.
