From November 29 through December 21, 2017, a team of scientists and technicians, both at-sea and shore-based, will be exploring the diversity and distribution of deep-sea habitats and associated marine communities in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

This expedition will explore deep coral and sponge communities, bottom fish habitats, seamounts, undersea canyons, shipwrecks, and a variety of chemosynthetic habitats including cold seeps, mud volcanoes and brine pools.

Using NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer’s unique capabilities, we will provide scientists and audiences onshore with real-time video footage from deep-water areas in important, yet largely unknown, U.S. waters. Anyone with an Internet connection can follow along with the expedition as high-definition video of dives streams live to shore from ROV Deep Discoverer from November 30 through December 20, 2017.
