Our technicians assist in the success of MBARI's marine
operations, science, and engineering goals. They design, maintain and assemble the gear requested for science
missions, including hydrographic and ROV-based equipment. They also support
instruments such as CTDs and rosettes, homer
beacons, and coring and sampling equipment (such as detritus samplers,
suction carousels, water samplers.) Additionally, they provide support in
the planning, design and fabrication of new tools and electronic devices
in support of MBARI's scientific goals.
Who to contact:
Mike Conway assists in the development and fabrication of new devices for ROV-based experiments.
Erich Rienecker is the contact for institute CTD operations and maintenance, and homer beacon use.
The group is led by Chris Grech, Deputy Director of Marine Operations.
