Collecting Samples - ROV Sampling Techniques in Cordell Bank
During our survey of Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary our team used many of our sampling capabilites to collect specimens for further analysis. From long-standing workhorses, like the manipulator arm, to cutting-edge soft robotic technology, we used it all during this leg of the 2017 expedition season. Learn more about this expedition.
Continuing north along the California coast to Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary (CBNMS), offshore the San Francisco Bay Area, Nautilus will visually survey deep-water habitat that has never been explored and characterize habitat, species, and communities.
