Benthic lander

Benthic lander in Ozeaneum Stralsund

Benthic landers are observational platforms that sit on the seabed or benthic zone to record physical, chemical or biological activity.[1] The landers are autonomous and have deployment durations from a few days (for biological studies) to several years (for physical oceanography studies).

Benthic landers come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending upon the instrumentation they carry, and are typically capable of working at any ocean depth.
