Laser Raman Spectroscopy

We have developed and deployed a laser Raman spectrometer (DORISS - Deep Ocean Raman In Situ Spectrometer) and a Precision Underwater Positioner (PUP) in the deep ocean. These instruments are deployed from MBARI's remotely operated vehicles ROVs).

Sheri White and Bill Kirkwood work on the spectrometer at sea during the 2003 Gulf of California Expedition.
Scott Jensen testing the PUP electronics in the lab.
John Ferreira preparing the PUP for test tank testing.
Alana Sherman and Mark Brown work on PUP during a December 2003 cruise.
