NOAA’s Seirios camera sled images the ROV Deep Discoverer (D2) as it illuminates a ledge covered with a diverse assemblage of deep-sea corals and sponges. D2 displays its newly installed sample collection equipment – drawers, boxes, an advanced manipulator, and positionable illumination system – that have allowed us to do precision collections under direction of our science team leads.
