This map summarizes operations conducted by the Okeanos Explorer and Baruna Jaya IV to systematically explore a priority 'box' at different scales during the 2010 INDEX SATAL Expedition in Indonesian.

During the 2010 INDEX SATAL Expedition, Okeanos Explorer and the Indonesian Research Vessel Baruna Jaya IV focused on exploring “boxes.” This map summarizes operations conducted to systematically explore a priority “box” at different scales: the area was mapped with multibeam sonar to help identify features of interest; CTD/Rosette casts were conducted to look for evidence of active venting; and finally, ROV dives were made to examine features of interest at a fine scale.
