Marine AUV - REMUS
The REMUS is used to provide temporal and spatial information about the oceanic environment. Multi-spectral light levels, salinity, temperature, chlorophyll a, turbidity, bioluminescence, bottom type change and identification, side scan sonar some of the examples of data that we collect while under the water. This data is collected autonomously, which means that a person does not need to be present while the data is being collected. This also allows us to collect data in ways we were not able to before: close to shore, around the ship to provide spatial information, in rough conditions, and at the speed of changing conditions in the ocean. This instrument has allowed us to collect data in ways that were not possible before, which allows us to look at the ocean and gain a better understanding of the processes that control our climate and atmosphere. The vehicle has been operated all around the world including the Arctic and Antarctic.
