Dec. 17, 2020 – Down 3000 meters by Hannah Blair, Stony Brook University

This last ADEON cruise is beginning to wrap up, with our last CTD and net tow of the trip completed yesterday through last night in almost 3000 m of water. We moved to this deeper area further off of the continental shelf so the Jason crew could accomplish some engineering dives, sending the ROV Jason out to test equipment and techniques in a dive that lasted most of a day! It’s been really cool to hear about the Jason and watch the crew at work – getting the chance to look around at the sea floor through Jason’s cameras has definitely been a highlight of this trip!
