Design and Construction of a Polar Remote Interactive Marine Observatory
Ocean Science and Engineering
A seafloor marine observatory is under development for deployment in Antarctic coastal waters to study and monitor the physical, biological, and biogeochemical processes as a function of global climate change. This observatory will consist of an instrument package on the seafloor 3.5 km from shore in 130 m of water connected the U.S. base Palmer Station by electro-optical cable, providing the capability for internet-based teleoperation by educators, students, and scientists from anywhere in the world
