Exploring Deep-Sea Data
Connor, Judith L.
MetadataShow full item record
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) has collected and archived deep-sea video from remotely operated vehicle dives since 1988. The video archive contains footage and data on the biological, chemical, geological, and physical aspects of deep regions of the Pacific. MBARI developed a software system, the Video Annotation and Reference System, to create, store, and retrieve video annotations. The system is based on a hierarchical catalog of biological, geological, and technical terms that allows consistent and rapid classification of objects seen on video. Based on knowledge collected by the annotation process, MBARI staff developed a web-based Deep-Sea Guide to the organisms and geologic features recorded on remotely operated vehicle dives into the deep sea. The searchable guide provides information about biological taxonomy, geology, and habitats, and displays dynamic histograms and useful statistics derived from the video annotations.

Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Adams, Diane K.; Mills, Susan W.; Beaulieu, Stace E. (2010-01-29)The planktonic larval stage is a critical component of life history in marine benthic species because it confers the ability to disperse, potentially connecting remote populations and leading to colonization of new sites. ...
