Description

The goals of this project were to (1) integrate a suite of sensors on a REMUS AUV to quantify, characterize and determine droplet size of spilled oil, (2) demonstrate the utility of this technology for oil detection in the field, and (3) develop a schema for real-time data transfer into existing spill response data management and visualization tools.
