Science / project plan

Using AUV, water characteristics can be studied in large study areas. This approach allows to quantify the importance of near-shore processes compared to the central part of the fjord and assess if there is upwelling at the sides. The high resolution of measurements can resolve the patchiness of the bloom. Cross section transects and measurements of a water volume with the AUV.
