Abstract:

Long-term goals for this project include deployment of mass spectrometers on network class autonomous underwater vehicles AUVs for in-situ detection, quantification and mapping of both volatile and non-volatile species in the water column. Ultimately we envision adaptation of our instruments as self-directed, true panoramic chemical sensors capable of, e.g., tracing dispersion of chemicals from point sources and investigating the evolution of reactive chemical species.
