Transforming the way oceans are explored

Transforming the way oceans are explored

At the MIT Museum during the recent Cambridge Science Festival, physical oceanographers Al Plueddemann, far left and John Lund, left, of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution explained how autonomous underwater vehicles can be incorporated into ocean observatories.  Ocean observatories are platforms for studying the ocean and its fundamental processes in real time, while returning continuous streams of data and imagery back to shore-based researchers. They include suites of instruments and sensors, power supplies, computer command and storage capability, and Internet connections or other advanced communications systems.
