NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer: In Port: Honolulu, Hawaii
NOAA's Office of Ocean Exploration and Research has begun 2016 ocean exploration missions on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer. Having completed the first expedition, which involved transit from San Francisco, California, to Honolulu, Hawaii, and testing and calibration of new and existing equipment, the Okeanos is currently in port. During the next expedition, running from February 12 to February 17, the team will continue shakedown of the newly installed systems, test data work flow and integration, and prepare for the rest of the field season. A primary objective of this expedition is to test the remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) in a controlled environment and train new ROV engineers.
