NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer: In Port: Mayport, Florida

From May 22 through July 2, NOAA and partners will conduct a two-part, telepresence-enabled ocean exploration expedition on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer to collect critical baseline information about unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas of the Southeastern United States. The first cruise, from May 22 - June 6, will focus on mapping offshore U.S. Atlantic waters, from Florida to South Carolina. This cruise will set the stage for the a follow-on mission, the Windows to the Deep 2018: Exploration of the Southeast U.S. Continental Margin expedition, which will include mapping operations and remotely operated vehicle dives offshore Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, from June 11 - July 2.
