Brief description Machine Assisted, Multi-scale Spatial and Temporal Observation and Modeling of Marine Benthic Habitats. The Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) science plans include sampling campaigns reliant on Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Facility data and designed to address the issues of marine biodiversity quantification and assurance. The proposed research will directly enhance the effectiveness of these programs by speeding labour-intensive analyses, aggregating the results, and searching for ecological patterns on a national scale that would be difficult to identify using traditional approaches tuned to process-scale studies. Australian society stands to benefit by virtue of improved large-scale models of ecosystem function and reduced cost for conducting marine ecosystem investigations.
