Floating Farms Could See Vegetables Grown at Sea

海上漂浮的农场出产的蔬菜

Leila Clark may be on the verge of revolutionizing ancient agricultural practices.The British design graduate has created a prototype for a floating farm that she hopes will allow people to grow vegetables at sea.Her scaled-down model uses evaporation to provide fresh water inside the dome structure.

莱拉.克拉克或许即将对古代农业活动进行一场革命。这位英国设计专业的毕业生设计了一个漂浮农场的原型,她希望这个农场能让人们在海上种植蔬菜。她的缩小模型利用水分蒸发来提供穹顶结构内部的淡水。

The basic idea is this sits in the water, water comes off inside the inside plant area;then the condensation who rise land on the dome outside so the plant get fed to pure water.The natural desalination process means there's no need for expensive pumps or filtration systems and as the weather gets hotter, more water evaporates.The higher the temperature, the better it works.

基本的想法是,在水里,水从植物内部流出; 然后上升的冷凝物落在外面的圆顶上,这样植物就能得到纯水。自然脱盐过程意味着不需要昂贵的水泵或过滤系统,随着天气变热,更多的水蒸发。温度越高,效果越好。

So this just allows kind of like physics to take care of it, you know, things heat up, they evaporate, they cool down, they condense.Clark believes such projects will become more necessary in coming years as scientists predict rising sea levels and global temperatures will render formerly fertile farmland, less productive.And as the world's population rises, so does the need to grow more food.

所以就好像是用物理学问来处理它,物质加热,蒸发,冷却,冷凝。克拉克认为,这些项目在未来几年将变得更加必要,科学家们预测海平面上升和全球气温上升将使原本肥沃的农田减产。随着世界人口的增加,增加粮食的需求也在增加。

So I kind of want to attack all two birds one stone like,if the increase population is going to need more food to support them and also they're going to need somewhere else to grow our food since the farmland isn't going to be available anymore.

所以我想可以一箭双雕,如果增加的人口需要更多的食物来养活他们,他们也需要其他地方来种植我们的食物,因为耕地会消失不见。

Clark did two months of experimentation using various methods to test desalination and plant growth rates in both still and rough waters.And then actually ended up making my own rig just on a rocking chair with the logical switch tank which was actually the best because I could record things and most kind of consistently.Clark has grown both chard and spinach greens on the device and thinks radishes would also grow well.She hopes to eventually receive commercial funding to scale up the project.

克拉克做了两个月的实验,在静止和汹涌的水域,用不同的方法测试海水淡化和植物生长速度。然后我就在摇椅上用装有逻辑控制器的水箱做了一个我自己的装置,用逻辑控制器是最好的,因为我可以记录下步调相关一致的东西。克拉克在这个装置上种植了甜菜和菠菜,她认为萝卜也会长得很好。她希望最终能获得商业资助以扩大项目规模。
