Geology through Sound: exploring the ocean with AUVs


On the Rocks

By Erica Spain

My PhD will use an AUV to map the geology and geomorphology of extreme marine spaces, from hydrothermal plumes and hydrocarbon fields, culminating in a voyage under the Antarctic ice. The nature of geophysics means the seafloor remains a black unknown, until we travel over it to reveal what lies there, like unwrapping a gift. The video is in a stop-motion format, with images revealed by scraping back black paint.
