In Port in Saipan!

NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer pulled into port in Saipan around 10:00 AM this morning, bringing the first leg of the 2016 Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas Expedition to a close! Our next cruise will start on May 20th and will be a 24-hour mapping cruise to collect data on priority areas in the north of the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands. We will use these maps to select targets for further investigation with ROV Deep Discoverer during our third cruise, starting June 17th. Tune back in and explore with us!

  1. Do I take this to mean no ROV dives until June 17th?
