This course consist of 3 modules; 1. Underwater robotics and use of different sensors, 2. Mapping and monitoring of arctic bio-geo and chemical objects of interest, and 3. Polar night marine biology.
To provide students with the ability to plan and conduct marine research using underwater robotics. In particular, concerning underwater robotics the students will be introduced to design, configuration, and hands-on operation of advanced platforms, both autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), during the polar night. Use and interpretation of sensor data will also be important part of course. A main ambition of the course is also to provide the students with broad and thorough insight into the biological patters and processes that characterize the Arctic polar night. Scientific question will be developed during the course, and platforms / sensors deployed accordingly.
