Welcome to ARTLab

This is the portal for many of the Autonomous Remote Technology Projects centered in the Institute of Marine Science at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Here is where you can find schematics and descriptions of our instruments, summaries of our current and past projects, and tools that allow access to real-time data.
