Watch live streaming undersea exploration
From August 31 to September 29, 2019, Scientists and research partners aboard Schmidt Ocean Institute's R/V Falkor will be examining Necker Ridge and seamounts in and around Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Led by Dr. Amy Baco-Taylor from Florida State University, the science team will aim to gain insight into central and western Pacific seamount lifeforms and distribution, while examining the role of Necker Ridge as a stepping-stone (or blockade) to other parts of the Pacific. They will gather imagery and samples of the seafloor biology.
