• 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.

  • Trash in the deep sea: Bringing a hidden problem to light

    Using advanced technologies, such as remotely operated vehicles, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) is helping to uncover the far-reaching presence of man-made debris in deep ocean ecosystems. Over the past 25 years, we have recorded evidence of debris up to 13,000 feet deep and 300 miles offshore from waters off of central and southern California, the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, and the Gulf of California. We've seen trash everywhere we've looked. In the greater Monterey Bay region, the majority of debris items were single-use, recyclable items. Plastic shopping bags and aluminum beverage cans were most common overall. Surprisingly, plastic and metal were found relatively more frequently at deeper depths, suggesting that the extent of marine debris on the seafloor may be...

    The Mediterranean Sea is a world of impressive diversity where ocean sunfish and whales live side by side, and colourful corals provide a home for smaller creatures. But human beings have left their mark here for thousands of years: ancient shipwrecks and fighter planes from the Second World War litter the ocean floor, while until recently raw sewage was fed straight into the sea. The impact has been devastating – today the Mediterranean is an ecosystem on the edge. But there is a glimmer of hope as measures to protect the sea from pollution and excessive disturbance are being put into place.

    This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Earth is an oceanic planet, and its seabeds remain largely unexplored. Andrew Wheeler and his team use ROVs to collect core samples from the deep ocean, their layers revealing Earth's geological history. Andrew tells the story a grain of sand taken from the deep ocean, and how it has changed our understanding of how Ireland's landscape was shaped two million years ago. Andrew Wheeler is a marine geologist and ocean explorer. He has led many deep-water surveys mapping and sampling the seabed. Andrew's studies have taken him from the Arctic to sub-tropical Pacific, from mid-ocean ridges to shallow shelf, and he is fascinated by the geology of cold-water coral reefs.

  • Brine Pool: Hot Tub of Despair | Nautilus Live

    Brine pools, on one hand, provide the basis for life through chemosynthesis for creatures living near them on the bottom of the ocean. On the other hand, the fluid they contain is extremely toxic to many forms of sea life. Here we see creatures that have ventured inside the dangerous interior of the brine pool and failed to return. During two cruise legs in May of the 2015 E/V Nautilus field season, we deployed remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Hercules to examine some of the cold seep features of the deep Gulf of Mexico. At some seep sites, seawater interacts with ancient salt deposits found deep in the seafloor, producing a highly saline fluid (brine) that can be more than four times more saline than seawater. When this brine is expelled, it is far denser than the overlying seawater and...

Plastic shopping bags and aluminum beverage cans were most common overall. Surprisingly, plastic and metal were found relatively more frequently at deeper depths, suggesting that the extent of marine debris on the seafloor may be far greater than known to date. MBARI researchers hope that this study will increase awareness of the growing problem of man-made debris in all parts of the ocean. It is far too expensive and impractical to locate and retrieve debris after it reaches the deep seafloor. The best solution is to reduce our reliance upon single-use, throw away items. Recycling, reusing, and properly disposing of trash items will help to keep litter from ever entering the ocean.

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 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.

The Deep Frontier” is an episode in the CBS News series 21st Century from 1968, that surveys exploration of the ocean floor. It utilizes U.S. Navy footage throughout. The film opens with divers in the deep sea, before cutting to an interview with oceanographer Harris Stewart (01:51). The film discusses the technological advances in ocean exploration, enabling potential study of deep trenches and the bottom of the continental slope (03:39). Oceanographers use FLIP (Floating Instrument Platform) to explore the ocean (04:05): FLIP drops 300 feet below the surface, giving scientists an underwater laboratory. However, to truly explore the depths, man must use specialized submarines. The Aluminaut is 3-man sub that drives over the sea floor (05:35), giving scientists unique views and allowing the crew to drill into the sea floor to take samples. A robot submarine (06:38) named CURV (Cable-controlled Underwater Recovery Vehicle) provides video of the ocean bottom in addition to retrieving sunken items, such as an H-bomb that is recovered off the coast of Spain or a torpedo (07:02). M. Scott Carpenter, the only U.S. astronaut/aquanaut (07:29), goes to Sea Lab 2 off of the California coast to test how long man can live and work in the sea. Sea Lab 2 is an underwater steel shell. Saturation living allows Carpenter and other crewmembers to live at the bottom of the sea and conduct tests under great pressure. Aquanauts use technology for their work, but not exclusively—porpoises (09:30) assist the men in their underwater experiments. Aquanauts relax and entertain themselves in the cramped quarters of Sea Lab 2 (10:06) before surfacing and going through decompression to account for the 30 days spent under extreme pressure. Then episode then moves to an interview with Captain George Bond of the U.S. Navy (12:00) and Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau (12:07), who discuss the problems of speech that occur from breathing helium. M. Scott Carpenter (14:09) discusses the comparisons of space and ocean exploration and laments the lack of support for sea exploration. Deep Diver (16:00) is vessel that helps improve the operations of moving divers from the bottom of the ocean to the surface. French Aquanaut Robert Stenuit and Marine Biologist John Lindbergh (son of Charles Lindbergh) (16:28) are two of the first men to dive out of Deep Diver. The two men discuss their time living in SPID (Submersible Portable Inflatable Dwelling). Deep Diver pilot Mike Adams takes Cronkite on a trip (19:00) to the sea bottom off the coast of Grand Bahama Island, which is 100 feet down. Cronkite sits in observer seat and takes in the views as divers go out and explore the site area and approach and enter SPID (23:45), capping off the episode of 21st Century.

The Mediterranean Sea is a world of impressive diversity where ocean sunfish and whales live side by side, and colourful corals provide a home for smaller creatures. But human beings have left their mark here for thousands of years: ancient shipwrecks and fighter planes from the Second World War litter the ocean floor, while until recently raw sewage was fed straight into the sea. The impact has been devastating – today the Mediterranean is an ecosystem on the edge. But there is a glimmer of hope as measures to protect the sea from pollution and excessive disturbance are being put into place. Sandrine Ruiton from the University of Marseille specialises in research on artificial reefs to build up the lost marine biodiversity near cities like Marseille, one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. Until recently it was responsible for seriously polluting the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. Christian Petron himself has been instrumental in raising awareness of this ecosystem in dire straights. His own 30-year-old archive footage shows the extent of the pollution in graphic detail. Both Sandrine Ruiton and Christian are involved in the hugely successful ‘Prado Reef 2006’ project, which is designed to repopulate the local waters by encouraging the colonisation of new reefs. Even old shipwrecks and fighter planes turned into artificial reefs and first indications offer grounds for cautious optimism. But to be able to accurately assess the success of these artificial reefs, detailed population counts are absolutely essential. But their accuracy is questionable when carried out by divers with conventional equipment – reef creatures are notoriously shy and many are likely to hide at the approach of a noisy diver. So Sandrine Ruiton wants to find out if Frederic can achieve more accurate population counts on these fragile reefs by being less intrusive. His ability to move and behave almost like a fish without any cumbersome diving equipment allows him closer access without frightening the wildlife off. His first destination is the wreck of an freighter, sunk after world-war 2, closely followed and observed by Christian Petron. The collection of creatures found here are delicate and extremely cautious. But this dive also poses real challenges for Fred: diving in a wreck brings particular dangers with it, especially for a freediver. Nevertheless, he is determined to press on with his attempt to evaluate the state of Mediterranean marine wildlife. The artificial reef population surveys are only part of the reason why Frederic has come to the Mediterranean. He also works together with Dr. Pierre Chevaldonne, a scientist at the ‘Station Marine D’Endoume/Marseille’. Both are interested in an underwater cave that could be invaluable to modern science. Organisms and animals that are usually associated with much deeper waters thrive in this deep dark cave. In particular a collection of sponges could be of interest, not just because they provide an endless supply of biomarkers that are very sensitive to environmental changes: they are also highly relevant for modern medicine. Sponges are known to provide AZT (Azido-Thymidin) – currently one of the most used medications for the treatment of AIDS and in the fight against cancer. The sponges generate these substances as dangerous chemical weapons against predators or as a defence against harmful bacteria. The research team is renowned for their work on sponges, but the breathing bubbles emitted by conventional drivers would collect at the cave ceiling and gradually kill the cave dwellers. But Frederic’s approach is very different. By holding his breath, he can ensure that the sponges and other cave organisms are not threatened. He is able to explore the cave in detail and report his findings and bring samples back to the research group. This research can provide ground-breaking insights into modern medicine, as well as giving an indication of the health of the Mediterranean waters by examining the sponges’ biomarkers. Together, Frederic’s involvement in the artificial reef projects as well as the underwater cave exploration are extremely valuable contributions to the quest to document and protect the diversity of Mediterranean marine wildlife. He is in a unique position to access and approach the wildlife, that cannot be replicated by using conventional diving methods, and as such is an incredible opportunity for the scientists to gain a new window to the underwater life of the Mediterranean.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Earth is an oceanic planet, and its seabeds remain largely unexplored. Andrew Wheeler and his team use ROVs to collect core samples from the deep ocean, their layers revealing Earth's geological history. Andrew tells the story a grain of sand taken from the deep ocean, and how it has changed our understanding of how Ireland's landscape was shaped two million years ago. Andrew Wheeler is a marine geologist and ocean explorer. He has led many deep-water surveys mapping and sampling the seabed. Andrew's studies have taken him from the Arctic to sub-tropical Pacific, from mid-ocean ridges to shallow shelf, and he is fascinated by the geology of cold-water coral reefs. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

One of the largest seafloor surveys ever conducted has found that Europe's waters are filled with litter, even at some of their deepest depths. One of the largest seafloor surveys ever conducted has found that Europe's waters are filled with litter, even at some of their deepest locations. The team collected data from 588 video and fishing trawl surveys of 32 sites. Bodies of water targeted in the study were the Mediterranean Sea and parts of the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans and each was examined at depths from just over 100 feet to almost 3 miles. According to the report recently published in Plos One, trash was found at every site surveyed, including the Mediterranean Sea, the Arctic Ocean and in an area of the Atlantic stretching from the continental shelf to the mid-Atlantic ridge. Most of it was plastic, followed by materials and equipment used for fishing. Glass, metal, paper, and other materials were found in varying amounts. Clothing and pottery also turned up in the search. Underwater canyons were the most detritus-ridden places. Sea shelves and ocean ridges accumulated the least trash. Said one of the researchers, "Most of the deep sea remains unexplored by humans and these are our first visits to many of these sites, but we were shocked to find that our rubbish has got there before us."

Brine pools, on one hand, provide the basis for life through chemosynthesis for creatures living near them on the bottom of the ocean. On the other hand, the fluid they contain is extremely toxic to many forms of sea life. Here we see creatures that have ventured inside the dangerous interior of the brine pool and failed to return. During two cruise legs in May of the 2015 E/V Nautilus field season, we deployed remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Hercules to examine some of the cold seep features of the deep Gulf of Mexico. At some seep sites, seawater interacts with ancient salt deposits found deep in the seafloor, producing a highly saline fluid (brine) that can be more than four times more saline than seawater. When this brine is expelled, it is far denser than the overlying seawater and does not mix very easily with it. In some cases, the brine forms large pools, rivers or lakes. This highly saline environment is toxic for most organisms, but we did encounter beds of mussels and fields of tube worms that have adapted to life in this extreme habitat by processing seep gases and chemicals into energy. A larger brine pool was dubbed the “Hot Tub of Despair,” referring to its warm temperature (19°C) and high salt content—which can be fatal to many animals unlucky enough to fall in. This site was found nearly 3,300 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico and is a circular pool 100 feet in circumference and 12 feet deep. We are studying these unique brine pools to better understand how they form, how they may change over time, and how the organisms living near them are able to survive—and even thrive. We analyzed water samples, conducted high-resolution mapping, and completed extensive visual surveys to gather data on these sites that our science partners continue to analyze. ------------------------------- E/V Nautilus is exploring the ocean studying biology, geology, archeology, and more.
