From August 6 through August 20, 2019, NOAA and partners will conduct the first leg of the Deep Connections 2019 expedition on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer to collect critical baseline information about unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas of the U.S. and Canadian Atlantic continental margin. This leg will focus on the collection of seafloor and water column data using the Okeanos Explorer’s advanced mapping systems. Remotely operated vehicle dives will be conducted during Leg 2 of the mission, which starts on August 26. Learn more here.
Use of the live streams is an important component of the Okeanos Explorer’s mission. Depending on the exploration and operations at hand, content and availability of the video feeds will change.
