Towed underwater imaging systems are increasingly used for a wide variety of science applications in the deep ocean. These systems augment data collected by physical sampling such as dredging and trawling, but also provide an important sampling alternative where extractive methods are unnecessary or unsuitable - such as in sensitive habitats or for repeated sampling in marine reserves. Specific applications of image-based sampling are to ground-truth habitat maps at scales of kilometers and… CONTINUE READING
