  • Description:
    "This document contains project instructions for EX-15-04 Leg II, the first ROV cruise of the 2015 Hohonu Moana Expedition. Operations for this cruise will include ROV, mapping, CTD rosette and telepresence-based remote participation. The expedition will be staged in and out of Pearl Harbor, HI with operations beginning on July 31st and concluding on August 22nd. Operations will use the ship's deep water mapping systems (Kongsberg EM302 multibeam sonar, EK60 split-beam fisheries sonar, and Knudsen 3260 chirp sub-bottom profiler sonar), NOAA's two-body 6000 m remotely operated vehicle (ROVs Deep Discoverer and Seirios), CTD rosette, and the ship's high-bandwidth satellite connection for real-time ship to shore communications. Daytime ROV dives are planned almost every day from August 1-21. Dives are planned in deep-water offshore of Oahu, Ni'ihau and in and just outside of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM). ROV dives will include high resolution visual surveys and limited rock and biologic specimen sampling. Mapping operations will be conducted overnight and when the ROV is on deck. CTD casts are not currently planned by may be requested during the cruise to collect more environmental information at sites of interest. Exploration operations for Leg II will focus on deep-water areas around the North West Hawaiian Islands. This expedition will help establish a baseline of information in the region to catalyze further exploration, research and management activities"--Page 2.
