Camera 1: 2019 Southeastern U.S. Deep-sea Exploration
- Published: 07 October 2019
- From October 31 through November 21, 2019, NOAA and partners will conduct mapping and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) operations from NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer to collect baseline information about unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas of the Southeastern U.S. continental margin, along the coasts of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. The expedition will start in Miami, Florida, and end in Key West, Florida.
All things permitting, video from ROV dives will be streamed online daily in real time from November 1 to November 20, from approximately 8:30 am to 4:00 pm ET. Dive sites are expected to include deep-sea coral and sponge habitats, midwater habitats, biogenic mounds, unique geologic features, and other poorly known deepwater habitats.
