About a hundred miles off the coast of Georgia and Florida lies a strange ecosystem at the bottom of the sea. It’s an underwater landscape of coral mounds that stretch as far as the eye (or at least the camera on a remotely operated vehicle) can see. This month, the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research will use multibeam sonar to better define the geographic limits of the coral zone.
