ROV/Sonar/Image Enhancement - Working to Clean the Oceans

Rachael Z. Miller, The Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean
http://www.rozaliaproject.org

The Rozalia Project's mission is to find and remove marine debris from our oceans, rivers and waterways and operates along the New England Coast using a quartet of technology to achieve its objectives. The Tritech Starfish side scan sonar is responsible for a big picture san of an area. Once targets are identified, the VideoRay ROV equipped with a Blueview sonar, manipulator and Lyyn system is launched and gets to work picking up deep and hard to access marine debris. This presentation will look at specific missions and define the objectives, describe the environment, walk through the methods used and evaluate how the equipment performed individually and as a whole system. It will also run through a sample catalogue of debris we have collected and activities we have used to educate kids and adults alike about the problem of marine debris and how the technology contributes to the solution.
