Division of Marine Operations supportProject Manager: Chris Grech
This project allows the institute to estimate the resource allocation and track the usage of shared resources (engineering time, machine shop time, etc.) required to operate and upgrade its major marine assets: moorings, vessels, ROVs, and AUVs.
Feasibility of a Digital Video ArchiveProject Manager: Nancy Jacobsen Stout
Lead Scientist: Charlie Paull
This project is tracking industry trends in digital storage of high volumes of video data and surveying MBARI users as to their needs. Tape-based systems will eventually be phased out. As an experiment, the Video Lab is investigating licensing a small sub-sampling of high-definition dive video from the MBARI archives that will be digitized.
