A quick note to add to an answer on an earlier comment…you can track the progress of our ship and determine her location along with environmental data at NOAA’s ship tracker web site, http://shiptracker.noaa.gov/. Just enter the web site and choose the ship Ronald H. Brown from the drop down menu.
It is 2 a.m. and we just finished the first full dive of the ROV. Many samples were collected and a lot of area surveyed in the four hour dive. We will report on the data collected in tomorrow’s post – internet access willing. 🙂
