We’ve been working with the Oregon State University Marine Operations team to develop new ways for remote participation during oceanographic expeditions. Today, during an RV Oceanus Sea Trial, I tuned in to take a look at what was happening on deck and take a peak at the sub-bottom image from the chirp (which uses sound to image the structure of the sediments and rocks that make up the uppermost part of the seafloor).
These live streams will make it possible for students and other scientists to join remotely to see what we are up to and join our conversations on sediment core site selection. Looks like it is working! Great work from the team at OSU Marine Operations!
