View video footage captured by the Little Hercules remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and Seirios camera platform during the April 12 ROV dive from NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer during the Gulf of Mexico 2012 Expedition. The dive was conducted at site "BiloxiB" on the Biloxi salt dome and focused on ground-truthing water column anomalies imaged by the Okeanos Explorer's multibeam sonar that are believed to be active seeps, or areas where gas naturally escapes from the seafloor. A variety of interesting seafloor habitats were imaged during the dive.
