  • Description:
    "This document contains project instructions for EX-16-06. Operations for this cruise will include ROV, mapping, telepresence-based remote participation, and possible CTD operations. The expedition will commence in Santa Rita, Guam (13° 25.39'N , 144° 39.88'E) with operations beginning on July 27th and concluding in Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands ( 8° 43.906'N, 167° 44.001'E) on August 19th. Operations will use the ship's deep water mapping systems (Kongsberg EM302 multibeam sonar, EK60 split-beam fisheries sonars, ADCPs, and Knudsen 3260 chirp sub-bottom profiler sonar), NOAA's two-body 6000 m remotely operated vehicles (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 most days from July 30 --August 16 and a few dedicated mapping transit days are also expected. 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 may be requested during the cruise to collect more environmental information at sites of interest. Exploration operations for this cruise will focus on deep-water areas around Wake Island and along the transits from Guam to Kwajalein. This expedition will help establish a baseline of information in the region to catalyze further exploration, research and management activities"--Page 2.
