FSUCML – Getting to the Bottom of Things
May 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In the last decade improvements on sampling the ocean have emphasized the upper ocean, while the ocean bottom is usually considered to be dangerous for autonomous instruments such as gliders and floats. Our new profiling platform called the ‘Coastal Bottom Drifter’ that was designed for exactly that: to observe the bottom environment of the ocean, and to record various physical and
biochemical parameters. It can be deployed for days or up to several month and will help to close a gab in our understanding of coastal ocean dynamics that are so crucial to ecosystems, fisheries and the world’s climate.
