  • Field deployable dynamic lighting system for turbid water imaging 

    Gorman, Geoffrey A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-09)
    The ocean depths provide an ever changing and complex imaging environment. As scientists and researches strive to document and study more remote and optically challenging areas, specifically scatter-limited environments. ...
  • An investigation into the characteristics and sources of light emission at deep-sea hydrothermal vents 

    White, Sheri N. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-06)
    A spectral camera (ALISS - Ambient Light Imaging and Spectral System) was used to image ambient light from high-temperature vents at 9°N East Pacific Rise and the Juan de Fuca Ridge during 1997 and 1998 Alvin dive cruises. ...
  • Large-area visually augmented navigation for autonomous underwater vehicles 

    Eustice, Ryan M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-06)
    This thesis describes a vision-based, large-area, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithm that respects the low-overlap imagery constraints typical of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) while exploiting ...
