ROV / AUV enhancements and upgrades
Project Manager/Lead Scientist: Dave Caress
Lead Engineers: Paul McGill/Bill Kirkwood
This is a three-year project to accomplish the following:
- Develop a capability for high resolution mapping of the deep ocean
seafloor from 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 MBARIís GIS tools.
