Biological Ocean Observation from Big to Small

Biological Ocean Observation from Big to Small

25 Feb 2019, 11:45 - 13:15

Room 32AB

Increasing awareness of the human impacts on marine mammals continues to drive technological development to better measure, understand, and mitigate these effects.  This session is focused on the application of recent observational advances in airborne imaging and acoustic monitoring and the adoption of AI to efficiently detect, classify and localize cetaceans.  This is juxtaposed by the application of new sensor technologies allowing autonomous in situ analysis of fecal indicator bacteria.
