WormCam is an underwater camera developed at VIMS with funding from the National Science Foundation. A pair of WormCams currently provide sediment-level images of the York River seafloor at two locations. Still images and time-lapse movies from WormCam help scientists better understand the important role that burrowing animals play in mixing seafloor sediments, and the physical forces that control erosion, deposition, and transport of seafloor sediments, nutrients, and contaminants.
