Video highlights from the third dive of expedition Leg 3, which took place along a 450-meter contour at the southern end of the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi with the objective of surveying a lava flow of a known age (1,868 million years) to see what coral community had grown in the years since the flow had formed.
