Deep Sea Exploration and Research of Coral/Canyon/Cold seep Habitats
DEEP Sea Exploration to Advance Research on Coral/Canyon/Cold seep Habitats
USGS scientists, along with partners from NOAA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), are currently aboard the NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown collecting baseline information about deepwater habitats offshore of the U.S. Mid- and South Atlantic coasts.
The expedition is part of the 4.5-year BOEM-USGS-NOAA Deep Sea Exploration and Research of Coral/Canyon/Cold seep Habitats (DEEP SEARCH) interagency project.
During the 22-day expedition, the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason will be used to explore and sample seafloor environments, complemented by additional shipboard operations including multibeam mapping, multicore collections, and CTD casts.
