Underwater robots give unique Arctic insight

SAMS press release: 8 June 2018

 

Underwater robots have uncovered new evidence about life in the Arctic and, for the first time, revealed the moment the region’s marine ecosystem springs into life after the dark winter season.

The unique data was gathered by autonomous ocean-going ‘gliders’ and will help marine scientists understand more about the so-called ‘Arctic spring bloom’, which kick-starts the ecosystem and is crucial in providing food for animals in the region.

 

OpenMODs project

POGO is supporting #OpenMODS, a project led by OGS in collaboration with AWI

 

OpenMODs aims to devise open access marine observation devices, that will be globally available to all. At this exploratory stage, the project partners are trying to encourage research scientists, potential partners from the private sector, and other interested parties to engage in a discussion about what is needed and how it could be achieved.
