This week, L3 OceanServer will be at the State of Lake Superior (SOLS) Conference at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan. The use of AUVs provides significant time savings compared to traditional sampling techniques. For example, the survey of outer Milwaukee Harbor using an AUV required less than 7 hours for approximately 600 water column profiles, compared to the 150 hours it would have taken using traditional methods in a manned boat. If you will be at the conference, please stop by to learn more about how Ivers are being used in lake-specific research.
The 2018 SOLS Conference will be held October 9-12 on the beautiful campus of Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich. The conference is hosted by the International Association for Great Lakes Research with generous support from sponsors and local university hosts. SOLS18 is the second in an annual series of State of Lake conferences aimed at bringing together lake-specific research, policy development, management, education, and nonprofit organizations to broaden the discussion.
