Dear Colleagues,

If you research biological oceanographic applications of ocean gliders and other autonomous vehicles (including through bioacoustics), particularly in the zooplankton and/or marine mammal spheres, please consider submitting an abstract to present in our upcoming session at the 2024 ASLO/AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting which takes place in New Orléans on 18-23 February, 2024.  Abstracts are due on 13 September 2023.  Please share with your students, postdocs, research staff and colleagues!  Please reach out to us if you have any questions. To review the session information and submit an abstract, follow this link:

OT005 - Autonomous ocean platform applications in biological oceanography and wildlife ecology

Session abstract:

Untethered autonomous ocean platforms (e.g., gliders, buoys, moorings, floats) and their sensors have been proliferating in the last decade. Sensors that measure biological species and processes are commercially available and many new studies have been published on their application to studying ocean biology in the last five years. Bio-acoustic, bio-optic, imaging and video camera devices mounted on autonomous platforms can collect information on ocean wildlife in the water column in parts of the ocean that were not accessible before. Improved sensors are becoming available each year as platforms and sensors become more efficient, particularly in power consumption, allowing for longer and deeper deployments that sample biology at new space-time scales. Examples include censusing plankton biodiversity, monitoring migration phenology of sound-producing taxa, and studying food web, predator-prey, and habitat-use dynamics. This session invites abstracts on research and development into the application of autonomous vehicles and their sensors to wildlife ecology. Topics may include, but are not limited to: zooplankton or vertebrate ecology; passive acoustic monitoring; and deep sea ecology. Presentations should focus on oceanographic and ecological applications of the technology to understanding high-order organisms (i.e., solving problems in biological oceanography and ecology), as opposed to technological or engineering research & development.

We hope to see you in New Orléans,
Co-chairs Kim Davies and Erin Meyer-Gutbrod
