Note(s): Sampling the marine environment has been accomplished from ship board, occupied submersibles, scuba, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), and other platforms. With the increased presence of ROVs used in today's research arena, operators are faced with inadequacies in sampling tools available for conducting scientific research. This is even more prevalent with the Low Cost ROVs (LCROVs), which have inherent limitations not present in occupied submersibles and larger ROVs. Users of LCROVs have been forced to develop and adapt technologies to conform to the LCROVs' limitations. NOAA's National Undersea Research Center for the North Atlantic and Great Lakes (NURC-NAGL), has been using ROVs to conduct underwater research since 1984 and developing techniques and technologies used by LCROVs to expand their research capabilities.
