After a very successful mission surveying the deepwater habitats at Johnston Atoll, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer ship returned to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, this morning. On our way into port, we stopped at the Kilo pier to offload the ROVs. The ship then shifted to Ford Island for the rest of mission demobilization. With the conclusion of Leg 4, the 2015 Hohonu Moana expedition is complete! Thanks for joining our expedition and stay tuned for more details about what 2016 has in store for us!
