    This document contains project instructions for EX-18-03. Operations for this cruise will be

    conducted 24 hours/day and consist of daily remotely operated vehicle (ROV), overnight

    mapping, and full shore-based participation via telepresence. The expedition will

    commence on April 11, 2018 in Pascagoula, Mississippi ( 30° 20.355'N, 88° 34.499'W) and

    conclude on May 3, 2018 in Key West ( 24° 33.856'N, 81° 48.007'W). Operations will

    include the use of the ship’s deep water mapping systems (Kongsberg EM302 multibeam

    sonar, EK60 split-beam fisheries sonars, Knudsen 3260 chirp sub-bottom profiler sonar,

    and Teledyne Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler), XBT and CTD casts in support of

    multibeam sonar mapping operations, OER’s two-body ROV Deep Discoverer and Seirios,

    and the ship’s high-bandwidth satellite connection for continuous real-time ship-to-shore

    communications. Operations are planned in and around the US Gulf of Mexico and

    potentially the international waters of the Gulf.
