Underwater Robots Making a Big Splash With Scientists

Underwater robots are able to give scientists a much more complete look at what’s going on in the Ocean.  Here are a few excerpts from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

  • Researchers are using autonomous underwater robots to sample environmental DNA and monitor the biodiversity of marine systems.
  • The collected DNA offers insights into biodiversity changes in sensitive areas, the presence of rare or endangered species and the spread of invasive species.
  • Autonomous underwater robots are able to study previously unsurveyed regions of the ocean, and this new data could help strengthen global ocean health.
