Using AUVs and other new technology, we study and map oil as it spreads through water near oil seeps or after a spill. This technology can be used to improve the post-oil spill cleanup process and protect the environment.
Operating AUVs and ROVs under the typical open-ocean conditions has its challenges, but this project pushes the technology even further by conducting under-ice operations.
