Dive in and explore, in real-time, the deep-water seamounts of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM). Last expedition season the ship used multi-beam sonar to map the previously unmapped Liliʻuokalani Ridge Seamounts. Armed with these new maps, the team returns for the first visual exploration of the seamount chain with the ROVs Hercules and Argus and to investigate a puzzling split in the seamount trail. Hotspot volcano chains are usually linear (straight line) features, what geologic processes could have split this subsea mountain group?
The Ocean Exploration Trust (OET) and the Nautilus Exploration Program aim to explore the ocean, seeking out new discoveries in the fields of geology, biology, maritime history, archaeology, and chemistry while pushing the boundaries of education, outreach, and technological innovation. The Nautilus is 68-meter ship on a mission to explore the never-before-explored areas of the ocean and seek out new discoveries and share them LIVE via www.nautiluslive.org.
