Preparing to Dive

The Okeanos Explorer is on station preparing for our first dive of the expedition. We will be exploring a ridge on the south side of a guyot or flat top seamount in international waters, about half way between Guam and Wake Atoll. The dive will start in about 2,300 meters of water. Then we will work our way up to about 2,000 meters. ROV deployment is scheduled for 0815 ship time (UTC+11), which is 17:15 EDT.
