Abstract:

The long term goal is development and utilization of a suite of high-resolution, linescan-camera based imaging systems to investigate the distribution and composition of plankton and suspended particles in the marine environment. The system is designed with wide dynamic range and will ultimately be used for high speed, high resolution characterization of water column particle fields in high, medium and low latitudes. Such a system will have broad application to areas of defense and environmental interests such as ecological modeling efforts, Autonomous Ocean Sampling Networks AOSN, and ground-truthing of satellite data.
