Hydro-acoustic data is being collected regularly these days. Most of the collection is being conducted free-floating hydrophones some stationary devices on the seafloor. These make up arrays that can give scientists insight into a lot of seismic, human-made, and biological noises.
After searching through the records of our own trips we’ve come up with what we consider a good basic field kit for any Trident deployment.
There’s a lot more to see close to shore than you think. The new class of remotely operated vehicles or underwater drones like Trident makes them far more accessible. Check out our list of favorites.
Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), like any machine or equipment used in marine or freshwater applications, present a potential risk for the transmission of invasive species. If not properly cleaned and treated, they may introduce novel species into new regions.
New buoy technology provides better wave forecasts and ocean weather data for remote islands with critical coral ecology challenges.
Trident captures the excitement of underwater discovery, giving the controls to participants and bringing them a real-life experience of underwater science.
Two amazing women are touring the country with an underwater robot camp for girls to learn to be leaders in science and exploration
