Dive 08: Clipperton Fracture Zone

Today we are diving along the far western limits of the Clipperton Fracture Zone. It crosses the Line Islands and can be traced more than 7,000 kilometers (4,350 miles) across the Pacific Basin. We will be looking at the fauna at abyssal depths, as we plan to dive to 4,500 meters (~14,765 feet). Our anticipated start time is 8:30 AM, SST (3:30 PM, EDT).
