Beautiful Day for TowCam

Teacher-at-Sea Beverly Owens captured this photo of TowCam just before WHOI engineers Erich Horgan and Ben Pietro deployed it as part of the Canyons CSI research cruise off the U.S. East Coast on the NOAA ship Henry Bigelow. Ocean canyons are important regions where deep, nutrient-rich waters well up to the surface to support a productive and diverse marine ecosystem. Seafloor photographs from TowCam of deep-water corals in the canyons will help the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in deciding which sites should be given special protection.
