Another snowy day in the Midwest, and this song came to mind - "Oh the weather outside is frightful. But the fire is so delightful." Those conditions made this a perfect day for testing the adapter that makes it possible to use a computer to record video from the ROV. Everything worked as expected. The shot of the fireplace is a still from the test video.
The project will commence what is hoped will become an annual monitoring program to study the amount, type and impact of persistent human-made debris on Geneva Lake’s bottom community. The work will be done in collaboration with Geneva Lake Environmental Agency (GLEA) to gather data for two purposes: 1) to inform efforts to maintain Geneva Lake's resources by protecting, preserving and enhancing a desirable lake and watershed quality; 2) to be used in a number of courses for analysis and discussion, serving more students than just those directly engaged in the project. Up to four undergraduate students will be engaged in the field research and data analysis.
