CHENNAI: This new year, India will begin underwater expedition of the Antarctic region using a remotely operable vehicle (ROV) developed by Chennai-based National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT). Samples collected from the underbelly of icebergs, which could be millions of years old, may hold potential surprises, including clues on origin of life.
The ROV, which is fitted with cameras and mechanical devices, will collect samples from under icebergs. It will also capture images underwater. "While the upper part of ice which is exposed to air keeps changing, the bottom part remains relatively intact. Some of the samples from the bottom of icebergs could be millions of years old," said NIOT director M A Atmanand.
