Mar Menor AUV 2011 Experiment

Motivation

Our motivation for this experiment held in the Mar Menor lagoon area, near Cartagena, Spain are to understand:

  1. the capacity of the lagoon as a biological buffer and to understand the exchange of water between the Mediterranean Sea and the lagoon. 
  2. the process of conducting complex multi-vehicle robotic experiments in near shore waters.
  3. to build advocacy and enthusiasm with the next generation of scientists and roboticists for marine robotics in Spain.
