Detailed Description

Dr. Jill Bourque on her first dive in the HOV Alvin exploring the Atlantic seafloor at the Norfolk Seep (~1600m), which lies off the Virginia coast. Jill is a biologist with the USGS Wetland and Aquatic Research Center, she says “I am fascinated by the ocean because there are still so many unique animals to be discovered. They are a source for the imagination, and I feel very fortunate to be a part of broadening our understanding of both known and unknown habitats.”
