  • Automating a 20-year survey of deep-sea animals

    A new robot that surveys the deep sea, collecting data autonomously, is providing a boost to one of MBARI’s longest running research projects. The Midwater Time-Series Project consists of video surveys of animals in the upper kilometer of the water column in Monterey Bay. Trained biologists review the video footage, identifying and documenting every animal seen. The resulting data can be analyzed to determine what species live in the midwater region, adding to our understanding of life in the deep sea, and how it is changing over time. The new i2MAP (Investigations of Imaging for Midwater Autonomous Platforms) AUV system will increase survey efficiency and add to the remotely operated vehicle observations MBARI researchers have been making over the past two decades.

  • Deepest Part of The Oceans - Full Documentary HD

    Measuring the Greatest Ocean Depth The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point in Earth's oceans. In 2010 the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping measured the depth of the Challenger Deep at 10,994 meters (36,070 feet) below sea level with an estimated vertical accuracy of ± 40 meters. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, were placed at this location it would be covered by over one mile of water. The first depth measurements in the Mariana Trench were made by the British survey ship HMS Challenger, which was used by the Royal Navy in 1875 to conduct research in the trench. The greatest depth that they recorded at that time was 8,184 meters (26,850 feet). In 1951, another Royal Navy vessel, also named the "HMS Challenger," returned to the ...

The blue outline shows the stern structure in 2012, the red outline in March 2014 and the grey outline in March 2015. This sequence of movements demonstrates how the aft section, as previously forecast by naval architects appointed by the insurers, is expected to continue to deteriorate and move into deeper water over time as a result of natural forces. The ADUS survey also identified some movement of the bow pieces, which divers have since inspected and identified debris previously trapped that is now being recovered.

The greatest depth that they recorded at that time was 8,184 meters (26,850 feet). In 1951, another Royal Navy vessel, also named the "HMS Challenger," returned to the area for additional measurements. They discovered an even deeper location with a depth of 10,900 meters (35,760 feet) determined by echo sounding. The Challenger Deep was named after the Royal Navy vessel that made these measurements. In 2009, sonar mapping done by researchers aboard the RV Kilo Moana, operated by the University of Hawaii, determined the depth to be 10,971 meters (35,994 feet) with a potential error of ± 22 meters. The most recent measurement, done in 2010, is the 10,994 meter ( ± 40 meter accuracy) depth reported at the top of this article, measured by the United States Center for Coastal & Ocean Mapping.

That’s the case of the amazing glass beach, located at Ussuri (oo-SOO-ree) Bay near Vladivostok. The remarkable beach was initially created by pollution … when people dumped their old vodka, beer and wine bottles at the location. But over the years, the waves and tides of the Bay pounded the glass … and that made the dangerous, jagged shards rounded and smooth. Now the multicolored glass resembles glittering pebbles that give the beach a unique, sparkling appearance. Lost Wonder Found? The Pink and White Terraces were once called the 8th wonder of the world … and famed as New Zealand’s greatest tourist attraction They were the largest silica sinter deposits on Earth … and had the appearance of cascading pools that descended into Lake Rotomahana, on the North Island of New Zealand. The White Terrace was located about a mile from the Pink Terrace … both formations were created by geothermal springs at each location. When Mount Tarawera (tear-AH wear-uh) erupted in 1886, the terraces were buried under ash and mud … and were thought to have been destroyed and lost. Some studies indicated that the terraces may have fallen into the bottom of Lake Rotomahana …but some evidence that was recently uncovered might challenge that theory. It’s possible the terraces could still be in reasonable condition -- and buried on the lake’s shores. Some long-lost diaries of a German-Austrian geologist who surveyed the area in 1859 offered details about the terraces location … that’s especially significant because the government never conducted an official survey of the lake area. Based on the diaries, researchers now think the terraces could be located around 32 feet under the surface of the terrain near the lake. An archaeological survey of the area is in the planning stages. Two Heads on Porpoise Researchers say that only 10 cases of conjoined aquatic mammals have been observed. The most recent case happened off the coast of the Netherlands. Fishermen there hauled in a porpoise that had one body and two separate, fully developed heads. The picture looks like something that could have been staged, or digitally manipulated, although we’re told this is genuine. But it you’d never guess it was a porpoise, never mind one that has two heads. At first glance kind of looks like a misshapen seal … or even some sort of mutant shark. But experts say it is the world’s first confirmed specimen of conjoined twin harbor porpoises. From studying the pictures, marine biologists concluded that the creatures died soon after they were born. That’s based in part on the condition of the cetaceans tail and dorsal fin, which would have stiffened had they been alive. Experts think the number of conjoined cetacean twins in the wild is far greater than the 10 cases so far confirmed … but because the animals are born at sea, they might never be found. Freak Fish (thumb?) The Lizard Fish looks like a mash-up of those two species … it appears to be half lizard, half fish … and all kinds of scary! One of these critters was found off the Australian coast in Tasmania recently. And the picture shows a beast that looks like it could be a real Tasmanian Devil (of sorts) … even if it doesn’t resemble the carnivorous marsupial, or the cartoon character. While this one looks kind of like a small alligator, it would be right at home on some sort of horror movie. Appropriately enough, the Deepsea Lizardfish is usually found at depths exceeding 8,000 feet. And as you can tell from those hundreds of needlelike teeth, it is a superpredator of the ocean floor, taking out other fish and squid with its fearsome jaws. Scientists say that due to its deep sea habitat, it can be difficult to find a mate … some the animals have evolved as hermaphrodites. That way they can reproduce whether they encounter a male or female of the species … although it might take some time to love a face like that.

Video footage collected using drifting baited cameras (pelagic BRUVS) during the National Geographic Society’s Pristine Seas expedition to the Savage Islands (Ilhas Selvagens), North Atlantic, in September 2015. Situated approximately half-way between Madeira and the Canary Islands, the Savage Is. archipelago is Portugal’s southernmost territory, and remains little known despite its designation as a nature reserve in the 1970s. The survey, conducted in partnership with the WAITT Foundation, aimed to conduct a quantitative assessment of shallow flora and fauna, pelagic communities, and deep-sea habitats using diver transects and state-of-the-art underwater video technology.

China to Build First Resource Marine Survey and Mother Ship for by 2019 China to Build First Resource Marine Survey Ship, First Mother Ship for Submersibles by 2019 China is planning to build its first marine resources survey ship and its first mother ship for manned submersibles, with construction slated to start in July, the State Oceanic Administration revealed on Wednesday. "The two ships will have world-class technological and operational capacity. They will be able to travel at least 6,000 nautical miles on each journey," Hu Xuedong, the administration's deputy director, said. "This service will extensively improve our capabilities in ocean surveying, deep-sea science, and marine environmental protection." The marine resources survey ship will be 98 meters long and 17 meters wide, with a displacement of 4,000 tons. It will be equipped with a cutting-edge electric propulsion system. It will carry over 70 types of research equipment and is capable of performing accurate and long-term surveys across different fields including marine geology, marine ecology, and ocean-atmosphere systems. The mother ship, on the other hand, will serve China's manned submersible Jiaolong, supporting and analyzing the samples obtained by the submersible. With an estimated displacement of 4,000 tons, the mother ship will aid in China's effort to construct a manned deep-sea station that is slated to be put into service by 2030. Meanwhile, both survey and mother ships are scheduled to be commissioned in the first half of 2019. The survey ship will be constructed at China State Shipbuilding Corp's Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding Co in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, while the mother ship for manned submersibles in China Shipbuilding Industry Corp's Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry in Wuhan, Hubei province.

Following Cyclone Pam another multibeam survey was carried out by ADUS DeepOcean surveyors between the 18th and 23rd of March. The blue outline shows the stern structure in 2012, the red outline in March 2014 and the grey outline in March 2015. This sequence of movements demonstrates how the aft section, as previously forecast by naval architects appointed by the insurers, is expected to continue to deteriorate and move into deeper water over time as a result of natural forces. The ADUS survey also identified some movement of the bow pieces, which divers have since inspected and identified debris previously trapped that is now being recovered.
