Abstract

It is impossible to use human divers carrying underwater cameras, with limited battery and recording capacity, to monitor marine life and coral behaviour, and to record for 24 hours a day over three months. As a result, the use of an instrumentation platform, remotely controlling a deployed underwater camera system and sensors, is an alternative approach that can provide long-time monitoring and image recording.
