nereus recovery

Night fishing

Under the cover of darkness, the deck crew aboard the R/V Cape Hatteras work to secure the robotic vehicle Nereus and crane it back aboard the ship. A team of oceanographers and astrobiologists are currently using the new hybrid underwater vehicle to explore one of the deepest points in the Caribbean Sea, searching for life in extreme seafloor environments. Follow the expedition on the Oases for Life on the Mid-Cayman Rise blog.
