Title: East Amatuli Island Remote Video Link

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99434

Principal Investigator (PI): Michael O'Meara, Pratt Museum

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: East Amatuli Island in the Barren Islands

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Common Murres

Abstract: Under this project, a microwave link will transmit live images and audio from East Amatuli Island to the Pratt Museum in Homer. Two cameras on the island will be used to test remote collection of data on seabird breeding parameters (e.g., nest attendance) as a supplement to monitoring programs, provide a vehicle for student involvement in restoration monitoring, and allow members of the general public to view spill area resources and restoration research projects. Users at the Pratt Museum will pan, tilt, and zoom cameras to observe murres and kittiwakes. The cameras' computer control system will be programmed to store precise nest locations that can be revisited upon command, or automatically at specified intervals, to record images on video tape.
