After Alvin dive

Checking the Day's Catch

In December 2010 a multi-institution research team explored the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico with the submersible Alvin, to study deep-sea life. The expedition, funded as a National Science Foundation Rapid Response program to assess the impact of the Gulf oil spill on deep-sea fauna, was featured as a Dive and Discover expedition.
