The REMUS 100 autonomous underwater vehicle works just below the surface in Glover's Reef Marine Reserve off Belize, while the crew (Faegon Villanueva and Tyrone Lambert, from Belize; and Glen Gawarkiewicz and Harvey Walsh from WHOI) watch from the launch boat. Their effort was part of a study of the larvae of the Nassau grouper, how they are dispersed, and what that means for the connectivity of the populations on various reefs (led by Simon Thorrold). The REMUS vehicle was used to map the bathymetry (shape, depth, and topography) of the seafloor and the water properties around Glover's Reef.
