Yesterday’s ROV dive was spectacular! We imaged a large gathering of brittle stars around 500 meters on Surveyor seamount in the Gulf of Alaska. The low oxygen in the area made a great habitat for hundreds of thousands of brittle stars. ROV Deep Discoverer is equipped with a CTD (which stands for conductivity, temperature, and depth) that allows us to gather data on the conditions of where we dive, including the oxygen levels.
Join us today on Durgin seamount at a depth of 1,200 meters! Watch the livestream at oceanexplorer.noaa.gov.
