Taking the Lab into the Ocean with Autonomous Robotic Fleets

Researchers from MBARI, the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UH Mānoa), and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, after years of development and testing, have successfully demonstrated that a fleet of autonomous robots can track and study a moving microbial community in an open-ocean eddy.

Scientists and engineers from MBARI and the University of Hawai‘i deployed a trio of autonomous vehicles from the Schmidt Ocean Institute’s R/V Falkor to investigate  phytoplankton communities in an ocean eddy north of the Hawaiian Islands.
