Mapping the Mariana Back-Arc

ROV Deep Discoverer is secure on deck and NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is currently conducting underway mapping operations en route to tomorrow’s dive site. Mapping operations tonight will focus on adding to multibeam data collected by the Research Vessel Falkor in 2015. Tomorrow we plan to explore an area mapped with the Sentry AUV in December 2015 to search for new hydrothermal vents on the seafloor. Tune back then to see what we find!
