Dive 04: The Ocean Knows No Boundaries

On September 10, during the fourth dive of the expedition, scientists explored Sibelius Seamount, starting at a depth 2,600 meters (8,530 feet) and slowly moving up to the flat summit of the seamount. Along the way, they observed two separate high-density coral and sponge communities.
