Science Objectives

PI: Raymond Lee, Marvin Lilley, Maurice Tivey

Macrofauna physiology studies, environmental temperature and chemistry characterization, sediment collection

PI:

1) To install a seafloor optical communication device at a CORK instrumented borehole well-head (nominally Hole 1025C 47.887450 deg. N, 128.648650 deg. W).
2) To carry out a series of communication tests between the seafloor device and the submersible Alvin. 
3) Test a ship-based CTD-wire version of the optical communication device lowered to the seafloor in the vicinity of the CORK to test a remote mode of communications.
4) Test optical ranges within the Endeaour rift valley using Alvin

Science Activities

PI: Raymond Lee, Marvin Lilley, Maurice Tivey

Macrofauna collections, deploy camera temperature sensor arrays, water samples, in situ mass spectrometer

PI:

3 Dives
Dive-1 install and test CORK 1025C optical communication device
Dive-2 finish range testing at CORK 1025C
Dive-3 Endeavour Ridge dive with portable Optical comms unit

2 days of night time operations for CTD wire lowered optical comms unit at CORK 1025C
