负责任的环境监测是了解和保护海洋环境以及海洋资源可持续发展的基础, 比如深海采矿, 海上油气, 或可再生能源. 长期环境监测是pt真人电子海洋观测战略的一个重要组成部分,与当前的联合国海洋科学促进可持续发展十年尤其相关. However, monitoring of temporal change in the remote deep sea is rare. Seabed photography provides a feasible, 定量, 可重复的, 有成本效益的解决方案, 并越来越多地用于评估和监测偏远海洋环境的变化, particularly by industry and government agencies. 有效的海洋观测和成功的监测需要在不同时间点收集的数据之间具有可比性, so practicable optimization of data collection for interoperability is important; however, these 条件 for robust monitoring are not commonly met, 关键问题依然存在. 

The aims of this project are to: (1) monitor temporal ecological change to megabenthic communities using towed cameras (and data captured with other camera platforms); and (2) establish best practices for optimizing interoperability of photograph-derived data for monitoring marine seabed communities.
