An intensified video transect technique has been used to identify and map bioluminescent organisms based on the spatial and temporal patterns of their stimulated bioluminescent displays (Greene et al., 1992; Widder et al., 1989, 1992).
This technique evolved as a by-product of an investigation of unstimululated background bioluminescence levels in the Monterey Canyon. The intensified video transect technique employed during that investigation, using the single person submersible DEEP ROVER, was originally designed to measure the abundance of potential luminescent sources in the water column. During horizontal transects, a video recording was made of bioluminescent displays from organisms which were mechanically stimulated to luminesce as they contacted a 1-meter diameter screen mounted in front of the submersible.
