Underwater Optical System Images Seafloor at Microscale

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
An underwater computer with an interface to a microscopic imaging unit is enabling scientists to noninvasively image seafloor environments and organisms in situ at nearly µM resolution. Developed by a team at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, the system — Benthic Underwater Microscope (BUM) — will help scientists better understand the dynamic ecological processes taking place underwater on a microscopic scale. Imaging the seafloor environment presents significant challenges, including active instrument positioning,...Read full article
