D2 is on the Bottom


1042 EDT: NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer’s ROV Deep Discoverer (D2) has arrived on the bottom for the first dive of the Northeast U.S. Canyons Expedition. Today’s dive is at site east of Block Canyon, starting at approximately 1,870m. We have begun transiting up a steep slope to investigate headwall scarps of a large landslide scar on the lower continental slope. D2 will be leaving the bottom around 1530 EDT.
