Dive 15

NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer  is currently exploring a ridge feature that trends east- west in the Islands Unit of the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument. This feature was only just mapped for the first time during Leg 2 of this expedition. Yesterday we explored the deeper portion of the ridge and today we are focusing on the uppermost part and the ridge top. So far we have found a diversity of corals and unexpected geology. Stay tuned to see what we fun next!
