Multimedia » Atlantic Shelfbreak: Using Robotic Vehicles to Observe Ocean Life



Studies along the shelfbreak—the transition from continental shelf to slope—in the Northwest Atlantic by researchers from WHOI and Rutgers are revealing connections between physical processes in the ocean and the things that live there. In this video, follow along with a team deploying an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) REMUS to explore the waters off the Carolina coast.
