On the Ocean Floor

Exploring the Ocean Floor
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Okeanos Explorer team has been busy in 2013, traveling to deep-sea habitats and studying marine life along the Northeast U.S. Canyons and at Mytilus Seamount. The team recorded lots of video, even broadcasting some of it live. Watch a highlight reel of the Northeast U.S. Canyons Expedition.
