The Okeanos Explorer began transiting from Swains Island to Pao Pao Seamount in the Tokelau Seamount Chain which will be our first dive in the waters of New Zealand's Territory of Tokelau. During the roughly 36 hours of transit, the ship collected data with three different types of sonar. You can learn more about these sonars and how the ship maps the seafloor by reading this mission log. This additional mapping will help to fill in the data gaps at the various seamounts. The updated depths of Pao Pao Seamount in particular allowed the scientists to further refine the dive track for the upcoming remotely operated vehicle dive. The scientists hope the Pao Pao Seamount will be an interesting shallow dive starting at about 530 meters. The dive track will begin along the northern ridge of Pao Pao seamount and proceed upslope to the crest of the seamount summit at about 270 meters. The goal of this dive is to continue surveying for fish of commercial importance, as well as characterize deep-sea coral, sponge communities, and seafloor substrate.
