Dive 11: Kingman Cone

NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will dive on a small cone on the eastern side of Kingman Reef today.  We are over halfway to Hawai’i from American Samoa. The shallow waters here support rich biodiversity. We are going to explore what lies beneath. Our maximum depth will be about 1,100 meters (3,600 feet). Dive time starts at approximately 8:30 AM, SST (3:30 PM, EDT).
