S-042 Antarctic Telepresence/Power Demonstration Project

Abstracts (provided by Bob Wharton)

1992-93 (the season I was there):

Working with investigators from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, we will demonstrate the potential uses of a basic telepresence system-a system that can see but not move. This system, attached to a submersible remotely operated vehicle, will be used to map the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of ice covered Lake Hoare in Taylor Valley. With data obtained by this system we will develop three-dimensional profiles of temperature, light, currents, dissolved oxygen, and microbial distribution and morphology.
