Project Overview

The objective of this research is to develop an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) based capability to observe and sample dynamic processes in the ocean to characterize oil spills and other environmental hazards under ice. Creating a baseline of data for Arctic Ocean communities can systematically be carried out with the Long Range AUV, Tethys.
