Seafloor Mapping Using Towed Underwater Video
We use custom-made underwater videography systems to map the seafloor for a variety of purposes. In addition to mapping oyster reefs, recent projects include assessments of seafloor conditions relevant to macroalgal production in estuarine and shallow shelf waters in southwest Florida, coral habitats in the United Arab Emirates, and shallow shelf communities in the Gulf of Maine.
