Oceans and Climate Branch: Evaluation of Advanced Technologies for Ecosystem Monitoring

Evaluation of advanced technologies to improve ecosystem monitoring. The Investigation is committed to improving monitoring techniques for planktonic components of the marine ecosystem. To this end, research has begun to evaluate the Video Plankton Recorder as a instrument to improve monitoring. The Video Plankton Recorder is like a towed underwater microscope. Zooplankton are quantified from digital video images providing finer spatial and temporal scale information on the distribution of plankton.
