Another Deep-C Benthic Ecology cruise is underway.

Well, another Deep-C Benthic Ecology research cruise is underway! 

This cruise will occupy the Deep-C benthic array with the addition of two new sites located to the ENE of DeSoto Canyon. Our sampling activities over the next ten days will include:
  • Multicore collections (3x per site) 
  • Water column profiles and rosette casts (at selected sites) 
  • MILET survey for benthic fauna and Subbottom profiles 
  • Piston coring at selected sites
This was our first multicore....
