HROV Nereus Expedition to the Cayman Trough

In October 2009 DSCL personnel participated in an oceanographic expedition as part of the NASA sponsored expedition Oases for Life on the Mid-Cayman Rise.

HROV Nereus Project

On June 1, 2009 we completed our first 10,900 meter depth dive with our new Nereus underwater robot vehicle at 11 22.1N 142 35.478E in the Mariana Trench in the Western Pacific. The Nereus project team is from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the Johns Hopkins University, the U.S. Navy, and the University of Hawaii. Some project-related links are below.
