Océano Profundo 2018


The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer's current mission, Océano Profundo 2018, is well underway. This telepresence-enabled ocean exploration expedition will collect critical baseline information on unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas surrounding Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. They expect to dive daily through November 19, deploying the ROV at approximately 7:00 am and recovering the vehicle at 3:30 pm ET. Check out the live stream and follow along!
