Coral Sites 1 and 2 Dive June 23, 2013

This is a highlight album from our 2 dives on June 23, 2013.  On our first dive site, we saw sharks at around 50 meters during our recovery of ROVs Argus and Hercules.  During the second dive, we traveled to a site about 10 km from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  The major focus of that dive is to take images of corals that have been studied since 2010.  The scientists are returning every few months to take picture of the same corals and compare them over time in order to see how the corals change in different environmental conditions.  We also so many other interesting biological and geological features.
