Океанографы будут использовать роботов-планеров для изучения таяния ледяного покрова Антарктики

Океанографы будут использовать роботов-планеров для изучения таяния ледяного покрова Антарктики

Использование океанских роботов-планеров для проведения изучений океана в условиях, когда обычные методы применить невозможно, в последние годы набирают все большую популярность в научном сообществе. Например, эти роботы помогли ученым-океанографам обнаружить в Северной Атлантике китов, находящихся под угрозой исчезновения, а также исследовать миграционные маршруты атлантического осетра. А теперь ученые из Калифорнийского технологического института решили применить роботизированных […]
