IMOS AUV surveys at Ningaloo

Our IMOS AUV Facility team spent last week surveying reefs at Ningaloo in WA.  These surveys were part of our IMOS AUV Facility benthic monitoring program and repeat transects first surveyed over a decade ago.  We were working with colleagues at CSIRO to collect this data and to analyse the resulting benthic images to document changes in the coral reef and sponge communities offshore of Ningaloo.  In addition to managing the deployment and recovery of the AUV, the team were also treated to some outstanding displays by the native wildlife.
