Dive 09: Young Lava Flows

ROV Deep Discoverer has been deployed and is descending to the seafloor at a depth of ~4066m to start today’s dive. Dive 09 will explore a series of recent (2013-2015) lava flows and search for hydrothermal vents or diffuse flow on the young lavas. If vents are found, we will investigate them and document any animal communities that have colonized them. The ROV should arrive on the seafloor around 8:50 ChST – join us to see what we find!
