NautliusLive – Action in GoM

[from the INDEEP mailing list]

R/V Nautilus headed out on April 23rd, (with PI Chuck Fisher, PSU)  to return to the sites that were impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill 5 years ago and looking at more distant deep-sea coral communities that occur close to natural seeps.

They are currently conducting pre-dive checks on Hercules and Argus and plan to be in the water again shortly. The aim of the dive today is to identify impacts to corals exposed to natural seepage.
