Finding hidden ocean traps

The unforgiving, turbulent, ever-changing conditions out here can make successfully locating a missing person difficult, if not impossible. That’s why National Science Foundation-funded researchers from MIT collaborated with Woods Hole, Virginia Tech, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, to find a solution. The team developed a technique they hope will help first responders quickly zero in on regions of the sea where missing objects or people are more likely to be.
