2012 - Analysis of Charles River (MA) Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) Using a Prototype

Grant Award Year: 
Principal Investigator: 
Bruce Jackson
Research Description: 
This project utilizes robotic submersible technology to characterize submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) blooms in the Charles River (MA) at the organismal, molecular and atomic levels. Data from this research will be useful in devising methodologies to control SAV contamination in the waterways of Massachusetts and other regions of the Northeast.
