Flow Mow Electronic Cruise Report

Flow Mow - CTD Program Overview

The Flow Mow cruise proved to be a successful demonstration of how an autonomous vehicle could gather information about the sea while at the same time traditional instruments were in the water. Such an observational opportunity is not recommened with a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) because of the danger of entangling the ROV tether.

Below are links to the objectives of the Flow Mow CTD program, a tour of the instruments and deployment methods we used, and some preliminary perspectives on the 40 stations we completed.
