An underwater holographic camera was tested in Baikal
Tomsk State University, in collaboration with the Limnological Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, is testing an underwater holographic camera created at TSU.
The holographic camera is situated 5 meters deep underwater and transfers data in real-time to the data center. The camera gathers unique information about concentration, distribution by size, speed, shape, and orientation of each particle in the investigated volume in the natural habitat. To check and interpret these data, scientists collect samples of zooplankton manually every hour using a plankton net.
