WHOI geochemist Chris German helped organize virtual planning sessions recently for AUV Sentry dives during the third of three expeditions to study seismicity along the Gofar transform fault in the eastern Pacific. Joining German, who is a co-principal investigator of the 4CAST GOFAR project, in WHOI’s AVAST (Autonomous Vehicles and Sensor Technology) facility for Sentry dive 621—the eighth of the expedition—were University of Delaware PhD student Melinda Bahruth and Sentry Team member Stefano Suman. During their meeting, the three were able to view and discuss sensor data from Sentry in real-time.
