Out of the harbor and underway!

NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer departed Guam this morning to commence the 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas Expedition! Today the ship will transit to Fina Nagu and conduct CTD rosette operations to look for signs of active hydrothermal venting. Afterwards, the ship will head to Santa Rosa Bank to conduct mapping operations and prepare for our first ROV dive – planned for tomorrow morning, April 21 (April 20 in Hawaii and on the U.S. mainland).
