Title: The use of mathematical models and autonomous underwater vehicles to monitor effluent discharges
Issue Date: 2003
Abstract: Near field model predictions can be used to reduce the uncertainty about the location of an outfallsewage plume during a monitoring mission. In this paper we present an innovative methodology thatuses these models to predict the plume location, establishing a sensing strategy applicable to amonitoring mission using an AUV. The paper describes two applications of this methodology,accomplishing the automatic mission definition using real-time oceanographic data.An AUV monitoring mission was conducted to detect and map the Aveiro outfall plume, making useof these applications to specify an efficient sampling strategy.
