SCOPE, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), and the Schmidt Ocean Institute spent a month on the R/V Falkor for an
"Eddy Exploration and Ecosystem Dynamics" cruise.
The team 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.
The cruise was highlighted on the Discovery Channel Canada's Daily Planet show on 19 April 2018!
