Water quality - Visual seabed surveys using remotely operated and towed observation gear for collection of environmental data
|Publication Date:||1 March 2011|
|ICS Code (Examination of water in general):||13.060.45|
This European Standard describes methods, requirements and equipment for remote visual surveillance of organisms and the seabed using still photography and video recording to ensure precise and reproducible data. The main aims of the methods are to record or monitor seabed conditions and organisms on and just above the seabed in a reproducible way at a resolution that is appropriate to the aims of the survey.
In caves and overhangs this standard may not be suitable due to technological limitations related to navigation and movement of the observation platform.
