Exploring the deep with the hybrid remotely operated vehicle, or HROV
The oceans average two miles in depth and in some places plunge almost
seven miles - deeper than Mount Everest is high. Researchers at WHOI
are developing a new underwater robot to explore these depths. Until
now, these places have been beyond the reach of conventional
technology. View various Quicktime animations of the HROV to the right. Get Quicktime »
