Dive 10: New Vent Field at 15.5N

ROV Deep Discoverer (D2) is in the water and descending to ~3,860m for today’s dive at a potential new hydrothermal vent field located at 15.5 N. Today’s dive will explore an area mapped with the Sentry AUV during a December 2015 cruise on the Research Vessel Falkor to search for new hydrothermal vents on the seafloor.  If vents are found, we will document animals living at and near the vents. D2 should arrive at the seafloor around 10:30 am Fiji time – join us to see what we discover!
