Title (EN) ELEVATING NUTRIENT-RICH OCEAN WATER
(FR) ELEVATION DE L"EAU DE MER RICHE EN SUBSTANCES NUTRITIVES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Nutrient-rich water from the aphotic zone of the ocean, which normally begins at about 100 to 200 meters below the ocean surface, is desalinated or partially desalinated in situ using electro-dialysis means (12) while leaving the nutrients in the water. The nutrientrich desalinated water thus obtained, being of lesser density than the surrounding seawater, naturally rises through conduit (20) into the relatively nutrient-poor photic zone of the ocean and is dispersed therein thus increasing the concentration of nutrients in the photic zone near the surface of the ocean. This increases the fertility of the nearsurface photic zone, and thus increases the supply of harvestable food fish from the near-surface photic zone.
(FR)L"eau riche en substances nutritives de la zone aphotique de l"ocean, zone qui commence normalement a environ 100 a 200 metres au-dessous de la surface de la mer, est desalifiee ou partiellement desalifiee in situ en utilisant des moyens d"electrodialyse (12) tout en laissant les substances nutritives dans l"eau. L"eau desalifiee riche en substances nutritives ainsi obtenue, ayant une densite plus petite que celle de l"eau de mer environnante, monte naturellement au travers de la canalisation (20), arrive dans la zone photique de l"ocean pauvre en substances nutritives et s"y disperse, augmentant ainsi la concentration en substances nutritives dans la zone photique proche de la surface de l"ocean. Ceci augmente la fertilite de la zone photique proche de la surface, et augmente, par consequent, l"approvisionnement potentiel en poisson comestible dans la zone photique proche de la surface.
