Cruise Leg 3 is Underway! Dive 01 at Makapuu

NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer departed Pearl Harbor, Oahu this morning to commence Leg 3 of the 2015 Hohonu Moana Expedition. The ship has arrived on station at Makapuu, located about 7 nm east of Oahu, for Dive 01 of the expedition. We are currently preparing to deploy the ROV at the south edge of the known and previously investigated Makapuu precious coral bed. The primary objective of today’s dive is to recover two flow meters placed at the edge of the coral bed, located ~425 m deep. If there is additional time after the instruments are recovered, the team may survey north into the coral bed. Join us by tuning into the live feeds!
