Virtual Field Trip: ROV SuBastian in Action

EarthEcho is excited to, once again, join Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor as the scientists onboard spend the months of November and December near the Mariana Trench, home to the deepest part of our ocean. Scientists aboard Falkor will explore several new hydrothermal vent areas that were discovered last year. The team is returning to get a first-ever look at the sites and lifeforms found there with Schmidt Ocean Institute’s new 4500 m ROV SuBastian.
