ROV Ventana

Background

ROV Ventana was built for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in 1988 with a standard suite of instruments and cameras. Data collection sensors, a high definition camera, and animal collection devices were also utilized.  The sensor suite on the ROV Ventana consisted of a Falmouth Scientific micro-CTD, a Sea Tech 25 cm path transmissometer operating at 660 nanometers, and a pumped Sea-Bird model 13 oxygen sensor with a Beckman type membrane. Data were acquired at a nominal rate of 4 Hz, then averaged and archived in 15 second bins.  ROV Ventana CTD coefficient data was also collected during MUSE. These coefficients are parameters that the CTD technician aboard the ship programs into the CTD.  During MUSE, it was utilized to assess the horizontal depth distributions and behavior of zooplankton and micronekton in Monterey Bay.  A Splat screen and bathyphotometer for measuring bioluminescence were attached to the ROV Ventana.
