We have put together a valuable set of sediment samples from riverbeds, estuaries and seabed nearshore in the Tohoku region of Japan, mostly in the vicinity of the Fuksuhima Daiichi Nuclear power plant. Many thanks to Julie Nagai, Philippe Couture, Jun Kamei, Shinya & Angela Saeki, Dr Olivier Evrard, Kenichi Kawamura, Prof Hiroshi Kainuma, Umilabo, Soness Stevens, Rohini Karen Deblaise, Dean Newcombe, Safecast Joe Moross, Prof Yoshida of Tohoku University, Christina Moorehead, Jay Klaphake, Kaori Hilton, Maria Ichizawa, Takuro Mizuta, Hiroshi Nomura, Katagiri Family, Zhiruo Gao, Yoshiko Toyama, Toby Marshall and all those who supported our efforts. The Fukushima nuclear power plant is leaking into the ocean, directly from the power plant, but also down the mountains via the rivers.
The samples we collect would be time, depths and geo coded (with GPS) and made available to anyone who want to analyse and share publicly the results. Because we have many simulation but almost no MEASUREMENTS of radioactivity in the ocean off the Japanese. A few days ago, we had a great time testing Protei 011.1 at sea thanks to Alex Li, Helen Yau and David Biddlecombe. A big thank you to Alex Li for letting us get on board of his boat for testing in beautiful Sai Kung, Hong Kong.
This is a google doc, please ask questions and add comments on it to help us improve, thanks a lot. Thanks to Darren Wee, we have a full page in the South China Morning Post (New York Times equivalent in Asia) today, July 29th, 2014. Yuen Long farm an hour from the sea may not seem like the ideal location for a boat workshop, but it’s where French- Japanese environmentalist and inventor Cesar Harada is based. That’s where he is designing and building unique robotic boats with shape-shifting hulls and the ability to clean up oil spills. Asia could benefit greatly because, Harada says, the region has the worst pollution problems in the world. He spent half his salary visiting the gulf and hiring a fisherman to take him to the oil spill.
It then dawned on him that because the robot he was developing at MIT was patented, it could only be developed by one company, which would take a long time, and it would be so expensive that it could only be used in rich countries.
Harada set up a company to develop his invention, originally based in New York before moving to Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and then San Francisco. He first visited Hong Kong last year while sailing around the world on a four-month cruise for entrepreneurs and students. He named the boat Protei after the proteus salamander, which lives in the caves of Slovenia. Harada built the first four prototypes in a month by hacking and reconfiguring toys in his garage, and invented the shape-shifting hull to pull long objects. Harada is also working with students from the Harbour School, where he teaches, to develop an optical plastic sensor.

Cesar Harada (30) is a French-Japanese environmentalist, inventor and entrepreneur based in Hong Kong. I feel so happy to happy to work with a group of the Hong Kong Harbour School kids to develop an optical plastic sensor for the ocean on Instructables! About 10 days ago, we went out with a little group of students and we intentionally spilled 138 gr of plastic samples in a small lake in Hong Kong to test our optical plastic particle sensor.
I trust Algalita Foundation and 5 gyres for that I was lucky to meet them in person and they had been to several gyres many times as an independent non-profit organisation. Yet, the Algalita announced that “Estimates of plastic in the world’s oceans exceed 100 million tons. So at this stage, we thought, we would find tens of millions of tons of plastic debris in the gyres.

The woodworkers institute brings you latest news show and equipment tests projects of woodworkers completely from the interior of the UKs best woodwork magazines. Half of the samples have been taken before the Typhoon VongFong, the other half during the Typhoon VongFong (Oct 13th 2014 over Tohoku region).
You can see where we drove with Safecast bGeigieNano (Oct 7, Oct 8, Oct 13, Oct 14)  or as one big map. We have great independent radiation maps on land by Safecast (JP), good sediment transports (rivers) maps by the CNRS (FR), and good simulation of ocean currents by NOAA (USA). Currently there are a few points being measured in strategic areas with Eckman bottom grab samplers. A very low cost machine that you can operate at the end of a fishing rod from any boat that only captures a few millimetres of sediment surface (most recent and most radioactive).
If you have a boat or know someone who can take us there, please let us know.We would love to sail along Japan east coast, for example from Iwaki to Sendai, in the legal waters of course. We are working with SAFECAST and the French CNRS, extending their work in riverbeds into the ocean using their methods and instruments.
It is the first time I have taken a long term commitment (2 years) to teach classes to the young, before I was only teaching at master level in Europe.
They deserve answers, but more importantly, they need to develop the capacity to inquire and propose their own answers, have their own opinions and strategies to affect change to society. We’ll test the limit of speed and agility of the shape shifting sailing boat in extreme conditions (wind, waves, currents). The boat was prepared by Guillaume Dupont, Jessica Louie, Cesar Harada, Bianca Cheng Costanzo and documented by Kwok Wah and Chris Butler.
We bent a boom in the MTR (train) and broke one mast when Protei 011.1 went under our big boat.
Yet the story of his invention started in the Gulf of Mexico, following one of the most devastating environmental disasters in recent years – the 2010 BP oil spill. More than 700 repurposed fishing boats had been deployed to clean up the slick, but only 3 per cent of the oil was collected.
It is the perfect location for his ocean robotics company, he says, because the city’s import-export capabilities and the availability of electronics in Shenzhen are the best in the world. He later discovered that Proteus is the nameofaGreekseagod–oneof the sons of Poseidon, who protects sea creatures by changing form, and the name stuck. A cylinder of oil- absorbent material is attached to the end of the boat that soaks up oil like a sponge. But submarines that have tried to explore the depths of the ocean have been crushed by the pressure of the water. Harada joins beach clean-ups on Lamma Island and says even months after an oil spill and government clean-up last year, they found crabs whose lungs were full of oil. CEO of Protei INC (USA) and Scoutbots (HK) Cesar has dedicated his life to explore and protect the ocean with open technologies.
After a few seconds we had to stop the test because our experiment became the feast of many fishes and turtles. It seems hard to trust a reliable source of information or maybe it is the science that is moving very fast. Oceanography 23, 94–103.), based on the trawler data by Algalita and other organisations produced this famous simulation of where we should expect plastic to be.

A very important missing piece of the puzzle is a comprehensive map of seabed radioactivity. The bigger picture is to gather data and produce a map similar to Safecast on land, but for the seabed, by everyone for everyone. This will be the 3rd time we work in Fukushima, this time with better instruments and partners.
So we are working on making a stronger mast, bigger diameter and full aluminium rod (instead of hollow). From a small garage in New Orleans during the BP oil spill, through the storm in the Pacific ocean and now in Hong Kong since last year. It is effectively a second sail in the water, so the boat has a tighter turning circle and can even sail backwards.“I hope to make the world’s most manoeuvrable sailboat,” he says. Harada was working in construction in Kenya when the Massachusetts Institute of Technology hired him to lead a team of researchers to develop a robot that could clean up the oil.
He built his workshop and adjoining office in Yuen Long himself in five months on what used to be a concrete parking space covered with an iron roof after acquiring the site in June last year.

Also, Hongkongers are excited about technology, setting up a business is easy, taxes are low and regulations flexible, he says.
The shape-shifting hull allows the jib – or front sail – and the main sail to be at different angles to the wind, allowing the boat to sail upwind more efficiently, intercepting spilled oil that is drifting downwind. “Sailing is an ancient technology that we are abandoning.
He hopes that one day they will replace the expensive, manned ocean-going vessels that are currently used for scientific research. He says locals fish and swim in the water and there are mussels on the seabed that are still covered in oil. The son of Japanese sculptor Tetsuo Harada, he grew up in Paris and Saint Malo and studied product and interactive design in France and at the Royal College of Art in London. But he believes that at an advanced level, art and science become indistinguishable.
The machine can work as one large machine (train) or as a fleet of independent agents disseminated in the ocean (swarm) to carry data collection or ocean clean up equipment.
Protei is a shape-shifting sailing robot, a wind-powered maritime drone that is remotely controlled or automated that will collect ocean data or transport clean-up equipment.
It was terrifying to see how quickly plastic debris spread, how voraciously animals came to eat it and how difficult it was to clean it up.
People ask me maybe because I have sailed across the gyre myself, collected plastic samples in Hawaii, and nowadays working on an optical plastic sensor with a team of young students in Hong Kong when I am not developing a fleet of sailing robots that I hope one day will be out there measuring plastic and other pollutions like radioactivity, acidification, oil spills, overfishing and other urgent ocean issues. Astellas US LLC North America Headquarters by royal Woodworking The Architectural woodworkers institute Woodwork Institute has been the vox of the woodworking industry. But it’s how humans colonised the entire earth, so it’s a really efficient technology,” Harada says. He says one of these ships can cost tens of millions of dollars, and a further US$4,000 worth of fuel is burned every day. Although he admits to being scared, “it’s the biggest release of radioactive particles in history and nobody is really talking about it”. It would perform missions such as oil spill detection, radioactivity sensing, plastic pollution mapping, coral reef imaging, fish counting and other experiments.

It took 10 of us, 4 boats and 40 minutes to clean 138 gr of plastic debris with no waves, no current and very moderate wind. But to be honest I have much more questions than I have answers – at this stage we all do.
Nobody has done it in a dynamic way before.”Harada hopes one day a fleet of fully automated boats will patrol the oceans, performing all sorts of clean-up and data- collection tasks, such as radioactivity sensing, coral reef imaging and fish counting. That does not include the cost of a captain, three or four crew members, a cook and a team of researchers.The expense of these research missions is one of the reasons we know so little about the ocean, Harada says. Cesar won the Ars Electronica Golden Nica [NEXT IDEA] with his Master graduation project from the Royal College of Arts, London.
I am writing to compile some informations I came across recently, trying to make sense and propose some ideas. Shortly after, Colton et al., (1974) surveyed the coastal waters from New England to the Bahamas and confirmed distribution of plastic all along the North Atlantic. We are turning the page and starting a new chapter of this great adventure with Open Technologies, to explore and protect the oceans, together.
We have explored only 5 per cent of the ocean, even though it covers 70 per cent of the earth.
Cesar has been teaching Masters in Design and Environment at Goldsmiths University in London, Versailles architecture School in France and lectured around the world. These studies have been recently updated in two comprehensive studies of the North Atlantic gyre (K.
And more importantly it’s got to be directly relevant to them, meaningful and rewarding at every step.
This report should give you a good overview of our current situation, future strategies and hopefully make you want to engage more with us, as a sponsor, investor, partner, buyer, community or team member.
How can we make the system resilient while solving complex computational problems in a distributed, unstable and hostile environment? Indeed, plastic is found in most marine and terrestrial habitats, including bays, estuaries, coral reefs, lakes and the open oceans.
