Taking a Closer Look

A REMUS autonomous underwater vehicle is released at Glover's Reef Marine Reserve in Belize as crew members Faegon Villanueva and Tyrone Lambert and WHOI researchers Glen Gawarkiewicz and Harvey Walsh (left to right) watch from the launch boat. Their effort was part of a study, led by WHOI biologist Simon Thorrold, to examine the effects of ocean currents on the dispersal of fish larvae spawned on coral reefs. They used a REMUS vehicle to map the bathymetry (shape, depth, and topography) of the seafloor and water properties around Glover's Reef.
