Dive 02: Beach Time

During the second dive of the expedition, the Deep Discoverer remotely operated vehicle (ROV) descended to 3,280 meters (~2 miles) to explore a site dubbed “Beach Ridge,” after the female composer and musician Amy Beach. This was the first ROV dive ever conducted in the Musicians Seamounts and the first in a series that will investigate the similarities and differences in community composition between different features across the Musicians Seamounts.
