Abstract

As climate change is continuing to negatively impact our environment, it is important for society to take a closer look at our oceans. Oceans are a significant part of our environment and contain telltale information about the systems that allow society to function. However, there are many difficulties and limitations in current ocean observation systems. In this report, we examine the use of autonomous surface vehicles to collect data and perform tasks in a variety of environmental areas.
