During the second leg of the Exploring Puerto Rico’s Seamounts, Trenches, and Troughs expedition, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will focus on high-resolution mapping of areas near Puerto Rico and the Puerto Rico Trench.
From February 24 – March 11, 2015, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will conduct a mapping expedition, beginning in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, and ending in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
From August - October 2014, Okeanos Explorer collected high-resolution multibeam sonar data covering 36,200 square kilometers of seafloor and conducted 16 highly successful remotely operated vehicle dives.
