Underwater Robotics Driving Advances in Marine and Freshwater Research

(AAAS)  Interdisciplinary science is driving advances in marine and freshwater research – progress largely due to the use and ability of underwater robotics to collect data from some of the world’s least hospitable regions, said scientists during a presentation at the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Washington headquarters.
Scientific collaboration required for marine and freshwater research was on full display during the “Pathfinders of the Abyss” panel discussion on June 16 jointly sponsored by Science Robotics, a new journal published by the AAAS, and Halcyon. A nonprofit organization, Halcyon seeks and celebrates creativity and galvanizes creative individuals aspiring to promote social good through core programs focused on the arts, sciences and social entrepreneurship.
