A deep-sea red crab hangs out on a bubblegum coral. Check out other images from Leg 2 of the Atlantic Canyons and Seamounts expedition.
During the second dive of the leg, scientists encountered a wide array of fascinating critters, including this beautiful hydromedusa.
Here we go! The next leg of NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer's has begun! Join us LIVE as we explore our deepwater backyard – the canyons and seamounts off the U.S. Atlantic coast.
Close to one of the most urban areas in the U.S. lie diverse deep-sea environments home to deep-sea corals, chemosynthetic communities, and unique geological features. Review our plan to explore this area in September and October.
From August 9-August 30, 2014, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will conduct a 22-day expedition in the North Atlantic in Veatch Canyon and along the New England Seamount chain.
