NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer:
Telepresence Seafloor Mapping in the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument - Wake Island Unit

From August 25 to September 11, 2016, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will transit from Kwajalein Atoll to the operational working grounds near Wake Island, followed by final transit to Honolulu, Hawaii, during the Telepresence Seafloor Mapping in the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument - Wake Island Unit expedition. Mapping efforts will focus on using the ship's deepwater sonar systems, including multibeam, subbottom profiler, and several water column sonars, to explore several unnamed, previously unexplored seamounts near Wake Island. The seafloor data collected will result in baseline characterization and better understanding of these fascinating geologic features.
