D2 in the water

0845EDT: Today’s dive is at Mytilus Seamount, which is the least explored of the New England Seamount chain. This dive will transit steep terrain along the south side of the seamount to characterize deep sea coral and sponge communities.  The dive track will start at a depth of ~3300m and continue up slope to 2600 m depth, time permitting. We will leave the bottom around 1730 EDT.
