SCOPE Spotlight

The Schmidt Ocean Institute (SOI) is hosting SCOPE and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) scientists and engineers on-board the R/V Falkor for an "Eddy Exploration and Ecosystem Dynamics" cruise. The team will use a combination of in situ robotic tools to characterize ocean features associated with mesoscale eddies (10-200 km ocean circulation patterns) inside the NPSG.

UPDATE: The LRAUVs have collected some amazing data and samples! Graphs shows an LRAUV tracking (black line) the deep chlorophyll max (dark green) along a thermocline (temperature graph). Mahalo to John Ryan and the MBARI crew for this great image!
