NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer: August 8 - August 31: Musicians Seamounts: Telepresence Mapping

From August 8 - August 31, 2017, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will undertake an expedition to map within the waters of Hawaii and in international waters in the vicinity of the Musicians Seamounts chain. Operations will include seafloor mapping to contribute to our understanding of the geologic history and marine habitats in remote areas of the Pacific Ocean. Collected data will also be used to prepare for the next expedition, beginning September 6, which will include live remotely operated vehicle dives.
