AUV sensor integration and science
Project Manager/Lead Scientist: Dave Caress
We propose to continue a three-year project to accomplish the following:
- Develop a capability for high resolution mapping of the deep ocean
seafloor from the AUV Dorado and ROV Ventana.
- 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.
- Continue development of tools for incorporating seafloor mapping data
into MBARI's GIS tools.
