Expedition Overview: Mapping Pacific Seamounts

As E/V Nautilus’ operations move for the first time to areas around Hawaiian Islands, this expedition will conduct mapping while in transit over August 6-19, 2018, from Sidney, British Columbia to Hilo, Hawai'i. The transit route has been planned to fill in gaps in seabed mapping coverage across the Pacific, plus targeted mapping of a number of seamounts in the vicinity of the Murray Fracture zone. Nautilus will also do some initial mapping of recent lava flow from Kīlauea Volcano.
