Unfortunately, we had to call our last dive of Leg 2 due to poor weather conditions. We spent the rest of the day collecting sonar data over the seep site and then transited towards Baltimore to participate in the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Remotely operated vehicle operations will resume during Leg 3, weather permitting. Join us then to see what we discover as we explore the Atlantic Canyons and New England Seamounts.
