Project Manager/Lead Scientist: Dave Caress
Lead Engineers: Paul McGill/Bill Kirkwood

This is a three-year project to accomplish the following:

  1. Develop a capability for high resolution mapping of the deep ocean seafloor from 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 MBARIís GIS tools.
