Ocean floor mapping is a key area of research for the AORG. The goal is to make detailed thematic maps of the seabed using data obtained from a combination of techniques and innovative data analytics. The AORG focuses on investigating the latest innovations in ocean survey instruments, including subsea camera systems, multibeam echo sounders and autonomous platforms. Read more »

Multispectral Acoustic Backscatter Research

One main area of research for the AORG is the application of seafloor acoustics for studying, mapping and monitoring benthic ecosystems. In 2016, the AORG, in collaboration with QPS and R2Sonic, undertook a study to test the acquisition and processing of multispectral backscatter data from a multibeam echosounder. Read more »

Camera Research - BRUVS

The Applied Oceans Research Group investigates the latest innovations in subsea camera systems. The team enhances knowledge on our ocean floor through data collected using high-resolution imagery. Baited Remote Underwater Video Systems (BRUVS) can be used to track species abundance and diversity. Read more »
