R O V \'s and Submersibles
An ROV is a remotely operated vehicle which is a robot that moves in response to commands given by a human operator or a computer from a distance. Rov\'s mainly consist of a frame, a control system, a propulsion system, a tether management system and some usually have an on board camera. ROV\'s have been used for the last thirty years. They have been doing tasks that divers can\'t, do to Economical and safety reasons.
A Submersible is a piece of machinery designed to do an underwater function. Submersible\'s and rov\'s are important to Marine biologists so they can study underwater creatures. Geologists can use them to find out more about the evolution of the Earth by studying the ocean floor. The ocean holds some minerals that are becoming scarce on the Earth\'s surface. If we can set up mining stations under the water it would also provide many jobs.
Undersea manufacturing plants would be practical if located close to materials needed that are in the sea. Crops such as seaweed could be harvested to make animal food and could also be used for human diets.
Oil is running low on the Earths surface and many oil platforms are becoming more and more important. Already 30% of oil used comes from those platforms. In another few years it will become about 50%.The Military could use submersible and Rov\'s to locate and retrieve sunken pieces of bombs, ships, etc. that belong to them
Deep sea exploration is The investigation of physical, chemical and biological conditions at the bottom of the ocean floor. Deep sea exploration can be used in Scientific and commercial purposes.
ThrogsneckThrogsneck History of Throgs Neck and Maritime College. “In September 1642, John Throgmorton , with 35 families applied to the Dutch authorities in Niew Amsterdam for permission to settle in. Permission was granted in October 1642, and the conlonists settled on the long neck lying south of what is Eastchester Bay today and named it Throgmorton’s Neck after their leader. By the time of the American Revolution, the name had been contracted to Throgg’s Neck. Throgmorton and his colony thrived for s
Benjamin Franklin - Scientist And InventorBenjamin Franklin - Scientist And Inventor Benjamin Franklin has influenced American technology, and indirectly, lifestyles by using his proficiencies and intelligence to conduct numerous experiments, arrive at theories, and produce several inventions. Franklin\'s scientific and analytical mind enabled him to generate many long lasting achievements which contributed to the development and refinement of modern technology. Few national heroes, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, play
Atlantis, A Lost ContinentAtlantis, A Lost Continent Introduction. Atlantis was a continent of the Atlantic Ocean where, according to Plato, an advanced civilization developed some 11,600 years ago. Plato affirms that, as the result of a huge volcanic cataclysm of worldwide extent, this continent sunk away underseas, disappearing forever. Official Science - the one you learn at school - rejects the actual existence of Atlantis, as it has so far been unable to find any traces of its reality. But the reason for that is sim
LifeLife Until recently, scientists believed that the sole source of energy responsible for life on earth was the sun. In 1977, a group of scientists researching the theory of plate tectonics, traveled to the floor of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and discovered something that could possibly explain how life began on this planet. From the Galapagos Rift\'s thermal springs, scientists discovered densely populated communities of several species never before observed. Since that time the Federal Governm

Baldwin and Upmanu Lall Utah Water Research Laboratory, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322-8200 Introduction The recent (1992-date) record rise in the level of the Devils Lake, North Dakota, has led to a number of questions as to the nature of regional and global climate variability, and the utility of existing methods for forecasting lake levels and ass
Ocean EnvironmentOcean Environment The sea is the most obvious feature of the earth\'s surface. Approximately seventy percent of this surface is covered by water, in one way or another. Beneath this water are the familiar sands of the beaches, bottoms of bays, and the inshore ocean. Farther offshore this water covers an amazing submarine topography of underwater canyons, trenches, mountains, and plains. Unlike the continents, which are physically separated from one another, the oceans are continuous and intercon

The Roles of Predator Avoidance and Light in the DThe Roles of Predator Avoidance and Light in the Diel Vertical Migration of Zooplankton Almost all zooplankton species undergo diel vertical migration (DVM) at some time in their life cycle. The most commonly observed type of DVM is a nocturnal pattern which consists of a single daily ascent with minimum depth reached between sunset and sunrise and maximum depth attained during the day (Forward and Hettler 1992). Migrating animals spend the day in deep waters and stay near the surface at night.
Renaissance vs. Modern TimesRenaissance vs. Modern Times Many people believe that the Renaissance and Contemporary times are related. However, the Renaissance Era was vastly different in comparison to modern times. In review of the early European Voyages of Exploration and the modern day explorations, there were major differences in the missions, motives, and the pursuit of answers to questions of those eras. The objective of my report is to discuss the differences in exploration and astronomy in the Renaissance period in
Jacques CousteauJacques Cousteau St.-Andre-de-Cubzac is parallel to the Dordogne river in Bordeaux, France. Bordeaux was a small town based on wineries and surrounded by vineyards. Here lived a successful businessman who sold real estate, deeds, and marriage contracts. He had four sons in which one became a businessman, like his father. This son’s name was Daniel Cousteau. Daniel was a prominent businessman who liked to invent and play sports. Daniel was married to Elizabeth and she gave him two sons, one Phill

El NinoEl Nino This morning, before writing this column, I spent a considerable amount of time watering my wilting garden. Meanwhile, the New York Yankees have been rained out for their third consecutive game. And out in California? Rain, no rain, rain, no rain... Why are we suffering such severe weather this summer? In case you have not heard, we are experiencing a weather phenomenon called El Nino. What is El Nino, and How Long Will This Last? According to Michael McPhaden, director of the Tropical A

Sailing EssaySailing Essay I was recently reading an article in a sailing magazine that had asked its readers to write in with the number one reason they go sailboat racing. The results, supplied by a few hundred people, were not surprising to me. The overwhelming reason people named was the stimulating mental challenge racing provides. Other reasons - the physical challenge, the team-sport experience, the social value and the chance to get away - were all rated about equally, and a clear second to the menta
CarbonCarbon Seldom has a single discovery in chemistry had such a impact on the thinking of so many fields of human endeavor. Seldom has a single discovery generated such wide public interest. From Taylor, 1987 The radiocarbon dating process was developed by physicist Willard F. Libby (please see photo) in 1948 with the help of two scientists, Dr. E.C. Anderson and Dr. James R. Arnold. Libby was born on December 17, 1908 in Grand Valley, Colorado. He taught at the University of California-Berkeley
Giant KelpGiant Kelp Introduction Giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) is a species of marine alga found along the Pacific coast of North America from central California to Baja California. Although it begins life as a microscopic spore at the ocean floor, this species may grow to lengths of 60 m (200 ft) with its upper fronds forming a dense canopy at the surface. Giant kelp prefers depths less than 40 m (120 ft), temperatures less than 20ø C (72ø F), hard substrate such as rocky bottoms, and bottom light i
