Deep Coral Shakedown (FK004e, EM302)

This cruise will focus on the development of safe practices and standard operating procedures for the deployment and operation of remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs), as well as for the ROV data and video management and distribution onboard. Testing and calibration of R/V Falkor oceanographic instruments will continue through the rest of 2012. Participating researchers aim to describe coral community characteristics, obtain specimens for shoreside laboratory analysis, and collect water samples that would help better understand the effects of ocean acidification on deep-sea coral communities.
