Evaluating Scientific Coverage Strategies for A Heterogeneous Fleet of Marine Assets Using a Predictive Model of Ocean Currents. Branch, A.; Troesch, M.; Chien, S.; Chao, Y.; Farrara, J.; and Thompson, A. In
abstract   bibtex   
Planning for marine asset deployments is a challenging task. Determining the location to where the assets will be deployed involves considerations of (1) location, extent, and evolution of the science phenomena being studied; (2) deployment logistics (distances and costs), and (3) ability of the available vehicles to acquire the measurements desired by science. This paper describes the use of mission planning tools to evaluate science coverage capability for planned deployments. In this approach, designed coverage strategies are evaluated against ocean model data to see how they would perform in a range of locations. Feedback from these runs is then used to refine the coverage strategies to perform more robustly in the presence of a wider range of ocean current settings.
