RB-10-07 Lophelia II 2010: Oil Seeps and Deep Reefs on NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown in the Gulf of Mexico between 20101014 and 20101104

Metadata Updated: March 31, 2017

The Lophelia II project involves exploration and research of the northern Gulf of Mexico deepwater natural and artificial hard bottom habitats with emphasis on coral communities. In order to better understand the deep water coral reefs, operations will involve primarily dives with the JASON II ROV for deployments, collections, and video. Dive operations will be performed over 15 to 20 targeted locations, at which elevators will be deployed and recovered for the large number of collections expected. Multibeam surveys will be performed over targeted areas for operational use. The JASON ROV will be equipped with a sonar for obstacle avoidance. Twelve to fifteen CTD casts with Niskin rosettes will be deployed and four to six previously deployed moorings will be recovered.
