ROV in Green LakeMichael McCormick, Professor of Biology, will create digital 3D models of microbial biofilm in Green Lake (located about 9 miles (14 km) east of Syracuse), one of the most studied meromictic lakes in the world. Using a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and with the support of members of the Digital Scholarship Collaborative (DiSC) and Digital Collections teams, Professor McCormick will collect a series of videos that we will then convert to 2D images. Using photogrammetry software like Agisoft Metashape, the team will use these images to make high-resolution 3D models of the biofilm for use in Professor McCormick's research.
