Re-envisioning Underwater Imaging

The Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory (AIVL) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) working with Marine Imaging Technologies has developed a revolutionary new multi-function, underwater imaging system capable of generating ultra-high definition television (UHDTV) video, 2-D mosaic imaging, and 3-D optical models of seafloor objects and environments. The new state-of-the-art technology is currently being field-tested on several submerged shipwreck sites in both the U.S. and Europe. 

Deep-Sea Images Give New View of Arctic Ocean Methane Seeps

WHOI scientists and colleagues from the Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate in Norway collected nearly 30,000 high definition images at known methane release sites in the Arctic Ocean. The detailed images will provide new insights into the most remote areas of natural methane releases in the world.

Camera's Eye Sees Large Numbers of Young Scallops Off Delaware Bay

NOAA researchers and colleagues from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) have reported what appears to be a banner year for young sea scallops off the Delmarva Peninsula in mid-Atlantic waters of the U.S.

Nereid Under Ice Vehicle: A Powerful New Tool for Polar Science

Scientists studying the harsh and rapidly changing Arctic environment now have a valuable new tool to advance their work—an innovative robot, designed and built at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) that is changing the way scientists can interact with and observe the polar environment.

Establishing World-Class Coral Reef Ecosystem Monitoring in Okinawa

WHOI researchers, working in partnership with the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, have developed the Ocean Cube Observatory System, a marine observatory system installed in waters off Motobu Peninsula, Japan -- a biodiversity hotspot that is home to ecologically significant coral reefs. The system enables real-time monitoring of temperature, salinity, and other chemical, biological and physical data.

WHOI Scientists and Engineers Partner with World-Renowned Companies to Market Revolutionary New Instruments

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution researchers have partnered with two companies to build and market undersea technology developed at WHOI: the Imaging FlowCytobot, an automated underwater microscope, and BlueComm, an underwater communications system that uses light to provide wireless transmission of data, including video imagery, in real or near-real time.

WHOI Team Uses Advanced Imaging Data to Bring a New View of Titanic to the World

Newly released images of the Titanic wreck site provide the first unrestricted view of the world's most notable maritime heritage site. The image mosaics are among more than 200 optical mosaics created by WHOI's Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory. These new images add to the already unprecedented collection of images published in the April 2012 issue of National Geographic Magazine.

WHOI Team Joins NOAA's Battle of the Atlantic

WHOI researchers have embarked on a 10-day mission to provide the first underwater, 3-D optical survey of ships sunk by German U Boats during World War II off the North Carolina coast.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Advanced Imaging Lab Assists in Location of Thunder Bay Shipwrecks

When a group of five high school students embarked on Project Shiphunt, an expedition in search of lost shipwrecks, in May in Lake Huron, the WHOI’s Advanced Imaging and Visualization Lab was there, surveying and capturing 3D footage of the finds. The work was conducted as part of Project Shiphunt, an initiative developed by Sony and Intel Corp and led by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association.

WHOI Receives Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Grant for Oceanography Imaging Informatics

In a significant step toward a new era in the collection and understanding of ocean science data, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has received a grant of more than $2 million from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for work in imaging informatics in oceanography.

Now in Broadband: Acoustic Imaging of the Ocean

Researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have developed two advanced broadband sound systems that they believe could represent the acoustic equivalent of the leap from black-and-white television to HD TV. For oceanographers, this could mean a major upgrade in their ability to count and classify fish and to pinpoint tiny zooplankton amid seas of turbulence.

Underwater Microscope Helps Prevent Shellfish Poisoning Along Gulf Coast of Texas

Through the use of an automated, underwater cell analyzer developed at WHOI, researchers and coastal managers were recently able to detect a bloom of harmful marine algae in the Gulf of Mexico and prevent human consumption of tainted shellfish.
