Peter Girguis Teams with NASA To Develop Deep-Ocean Observatory
September 21, 2017
NASA tasked Peter Girguis and colleagues at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to develop the ultimate deep-ocean observatory, ABISS (Autonomous Biogeochemical Instrument for In Situ Studies). ABISS launched in August 2017 and will be controlled wirelessly for the next two years from the ship E/V Nautilus. Girguis and his colleagues' findings will help NASA in their quest to explore Jupiter's moon, Europa, which may have the necessary ingredients for life.
