Back in Honolulu

After an evening of mapping, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer returned to port this morning due to an issue with our DP system. This system is critical to ROV operations as it allows us to safely launch and recover the vehicles as well as stay on station during the dive. Unfortunately, this means the end of our Mission System Shakedown cruise as we will remain in port for repairs. Be sure to tune in on February 23rd for the beginning of our next expedition and the kick off to our exciting 2016 field season!
