“A Valorização dos Recursos Marinhos" resulta de uma de várias tertúlias realizadas no Palácio dos Carrancas e reúne os contributos de mais de duas dezenas profissionais do setor.

Criado há 10 anos com a ajuda da faculdade de engenharia da Universidade do Porto, o REP-MUS-19 contou hoje com sete navios e 850 militares de uma dezenas de países.

O NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation e Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto participam igualmente deste exercício.

There’s more to a global network than satellite links, and yet sat-linked remote operations experts can heap huge scientific and technological gains on the world. That’s what’s happening in the background — a smallish network of the best scientists from around the world are orchestrating the communications and robotics that’ll yield groundbreaking achievement in the networked use of autonomous underwater vehicles, or AUVs.

From a scientific point of view, coastal waters are particularly interesting due to their heterogeneous characteristics influenced by factors such as currents, wind and fresh water runoff. However, such environment is also a challenge to study due to its dynamic spatiotemporal variation.

In the article “Toward adaptive robotic sampling of phytoplankton in the coastal ocean” NTNU researchers present methods and results from field experiments using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with embedded algorithms that focus sampling on features in three dimensions.
