REMUS Icebot deploys near Barrow

REMUS Gets Around

With the wind chill factor below -50°, a WHOI research team deploys a REMUS 100 autonomous underwater vehicle in a hole in sea ice off Barrow, Alaska, in March 2010. The vehicle, specially adapted for under-ice operations, was  nicknamed "Icebot." A year later, a pair of REMUS 100s are now being used to map the bottom of Lake Rotomohana in New Zealand and determine what happened to the famous Pink and White Terraces, a once-famous geological formation and tourist attraction that disappeared when nearby Mount Tarawera erupted in 1886.
