2024 Mapping Shakedown + High Seas Mapping

April 13-May 4, 2024

From April 13-May 4, NOAA Ocean Exploration and partners will conduct the 2024 Mapping and Shakedown + High Seas Mapping expedition on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, transiting from California to Hawai‘i. While underway, the team will spend time calibrating, testing, assessing, and adjusting the ship’s acoustic mapping systems and associated equipment. Once all testing objectives are complete, mapping operations will focus on the collection of bathymetric, sub-bottom, and water column data within waters of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. There will not be any remotely operated vehicle dives during this expedition.
