Autonomous Ocean Sampling Networks (AOSN)

Project Manager and Lead Engineer: Jim Bellingham

Bellingham, with funding from ONR (Office of Naval Research), will continue to lead a multi-institutional team to advance the state of observation of the ocean through the use of autonomous vehicles. Plans for 2006 include the development of targeted sampling algorithms to improve efficiency by focusing resources in regions of high variability and then testing those algorithms through the use of OSSEs (Observing System Simulation Experiments).
