Program period: 2013 – 2015
Number of vessels in the program: 14
Geographic scope of the program: North Sea, Skagerrak and Baltic Sea
A brief description of the equipment employed in the EM / ER:
All vessels were equipped with REM from Anchor lab K/S, including cameras, GPS and gear sensors, all connected to a control box where data was stored on two mirrored hard-discs. Video recording started when the vessel left the harbour (predefined mailbox coordinates) and automatically turned off when entering the harbour again, using the GPS signal to trace position.
A brief description of the specific goals of the program:
- Analyze the effect of a free gear selection in a CQM setting, using REM as documentation tool.
- Analyze observer bias in REM.
