In this episode of Marine Tech Talk, we are joined by Dr. John Howe a Senior Lecturer in marine geology at the Scottish Association of Marine Sciences (SAMS). His expertise is in fjord geomorphology and glaciomarine sedimentation. He is the operator of a UK Gavia AUV - Freya, and has participated in more than 30 cruises to regions including the Arctic, Svalbard, Indian Ocean, Papua New Guinea and the Chilean Patagonia. John discusses several of his recent trips with the Gavia AUV and the advantages that Autonomous Underwater Vehicles provide for researchers.
