Episode 18: Mapping Mesophotic Reefs in Bermuda


​In this fall series of podcasts, we introduce some of the winners and general entrants from the 2020 Teledyne Marine Photo Contest. Teledyne's annual Photo/ Data Contest concluded with over 80 qualified submissions that helped the company donate over $1200 to Save the Children as part of a charitable giving campaign. 

In this episode we speak with Dr. Art Trembanis, a professor at the University of Delaware, who develops and utilizes advanced autonomous systems to map and explore oceans and lakes around the world, filling in blank spots on the map.

 Art's contest submission was a photo of a Teledyne Gavia AUV, underwater in Bermuda, preparing to do some survey work around the mesophotic reefs in Bermuda. Art's submission won him an Honorable Mention in this year's photo contest.
