AUV sensor integration and science

Seafloor mapping
Project Manager/Lead Scientist: Dave Caress

We propose to continue a three-year project to accomplish the following:

    1. Develop a capability for high resolution mapping of the deep ocean seafloor from the AUV Dorado and ROV Ventana.
    2. Continue development of software for the processing and display of swath mapping sonar data (the MB-System package) through an NSF funded collaboration with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
    3. Continue development of tools for incorporating seafloor mapping data into MBARI's GIS tools.
