Okeanos Explorer (EX1702): American Samoa Expedition: Suesuega o le Moana o Amerika Samoa (ROV/Mapping) (EK60)

Operations will include the use of the ship's deep water mapping systems (Kongsberg EM302 multibeam sonar, EK60 split-beam fisheries sonars, Knudsen 3260 chirp sub-bottom profiler sonar, and Teledyne Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers), XBT and Underway CTD casts in support of multibeam sonar mapping operations, OER's 6000 m two-body ROV Deep Discoverer and Seirios, and the ship's high-bandwidth satellite connection for continuous real-time ship-to-shore communications.

Purpose This expedition is part of a three year Campaign to Address Pacific monument Science, Technology, and Ocean Needs (CAPSTONE) focused on systematically collecting baseline information to support science and management needs within and around the Monuments and other protected places in the Pacific, and serves as an opportunity for NOAA and the Nation to highlight the uniqueness and importance of these national symbols of ocean conservation. Operations are planned in the Rose Atoll Marine National Monument, National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa, offshore (not within) of the National Park of American Samoa, and the waters of both American Samoa and Samoa.
