• 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.

    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 ...

    During work in the Gulf of Mexico studying natural gas and oil seeps, the science teams from Texas A&M University, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the University of Rochester on the E/V Nautilus had the opportunity to conduct a visual survey of the Deepwater Horizon site, including the well head and the superstructure of the oil platform. The team was in the area conducting sampling of natural methane plumes. The science team conducted a visual survey of the seafloor around the well head and oil platform structure and took samples using the ROV Hercules to examine impact on the surrounding area. Funding for this survey and sample collection was provided by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. All of the visual and mapping data collected will be made available to the public for...

  • Scientists Find Rare Ocean Graveyard

    Survey footage of the ocean floor just off of Angola has given scientists a rare opportunity to view underwater graveyard activity. Survey footage of the ocean floor just off of Angola has given scientists a rare opportunity to view underwater graveyard activity. The site holds the carcasses of four large creatures -- a whale shark and three rays. While finding perished whales is common, seeing this combination of deceased marine life is not. Thus, the grouping is providing a unique opportunity to study feeding frenzies. What the researchers mainly observed were fish. Each of the remains attracted about 50 of them. Quite a few eel pouts were also found hanging around the site, but it wasn't the already dead food source they were interested in. They preferred to prey on the fish...

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.

Quite a few eel pouts were also found hanging around the site, but it wasn't the already dead food source they were interested in. They preferred to prey on the fish approaching the feeding area. It remains unknown how all four carcasses ended up in a single, relatively small area, but it was observed that all of them likely hit the floor fully in tact. Also considered is that the concentration isn't that rare, but rather getting a glimpse of one is. The area where they were found has been the focus of a large number of industrial surveys. This particular recording was made by a team working for BP, an oil and gas company.
