My name is Tim Weiss and I am a Software Developer at GEOMAR. As a member of the DeepSea Monitoring Group I support the researchers by creating software applications for the observation of deep sea environments. This includes programs and software plug-in's to analyse and interpret gas fluxes using multi- and single beam sonar data. Currently I am also working on a customized Camera Controller application to take high resolution images of deep sea habitats. If you would like to know more about current software projects please visit the deepsea monitioring webpage.
