For the brief 12 hour periods of time when Jason and Medea are on the back deck between dives, the Jason group can usually be found prepping the ROV for the next dive or performing routine maintenance. The scientists are usually busy working on the samples that Jason brought back to the surface. But, as soon as Jason and Medea are back in the water and working on the seafloor, the ROV Control Van becomes the center of activity for the scientists onboard the Ron Brown.
