European Standard





Language in which you want to receive the document


This European Standard describes methods, requirements and equipment for remote visual surveillance of organisms and the seabed using still photography and video recording to ensure precise and reproducible data. The main aims of the methods are to record or monitor seabed conditions and organisms on and just above the seabed in a reproducible way at a resolution that is appropriate to the aims of the survey.
In caves and overhangs this standard may not be suitable due to technological limitations related to navigation and movement of the observation platform.
